Origin follows a young man as he attempts to leave the challenges of Ireland behind for good. As he races against the clock to catch his plane, he is faced with the stresses and obstacles that modern day Dublin throws at him. Forced to run through the streets , he becomes connected to a deeper sense of clarity and presence. His environment dissolves into that of an earlier Ireland. Yet even as concrete morphs into the natural landscape of a different time, he knows that he is still in the same place. The spirit of those who came before continues to run through him.
