Beyond The Fire was broadcast nationally twice by TV3 after press controversy in the Irish Independent in 2010. It also won Best UK Feature at the London Independent Film Festival and Best International Feature at the Garden State Film Festival. It was also selected for the New British Cinema Season at the ICA in London. Beyond The Fire was 'must see film' in the Sunday Mirror Ireland.
Beyond The Fire tells the story of Sheamy, a gentle Irish ex-priest who arrives in London. Sheamy reaches out to the only other person he knows in London, Rory. Rory, a talented musician and band member, takes Sheamy under his wing and introduces him to his flatmate Katie. Immediately, the attraction is undeniable between Sheamy and Katie. She is a warm hearted woman but their romance faces a crisis when the past comes back to haunt them.
