Quick overview Where whispers carry as much weight as the secrets they cradle.
€16.99

Nate runs a mobile grocery service around the villages situated near the fictitious town of Ballantur in the year 1961. His mobile grocery service isn't merely a purveyor of goods—it's the lifeblood of communication among the isolated villages.

Nate loves to gossip, and he relishes his role as the town's unofficial newsman, weaving tales from one doorstep to the next.

Garda Caitlyn Kennedy who is one of the first Ban Garda’s in Ireland and has been sent to Ballantur for duty. Her first day goes horribly wrong. Her first mission is a disaster and her second one does not go any better. Her hot-headed boss, Sergeant Lamb, is not impressed.

One night following a Garda raid on the local pub, Nate’s wife - Babs, is caught in a passionate embrace with the local postman, Sammy Joyce. Their passionate embrace becomes a public spectacle, witnessed not only by the town but also by an enraged Nate, who physically assaults Sammy and threatens him.

But as morning light breaks over Ballantur, Sammy's lifeless body is discovered by the roadside—the victim of a seemingly random hit and run—or is it?

As the town grapples with grief and suspicion, the stage is set for a riveting tale of murder, betrayal, and a town torn asunder by the very whispers that once bound it together.
