Strokehauling explores the life of a small-town draper's assistant. On the surface, he is awkward, friendly and none too exciting but inside his head the world explodes in a cacophony of sounds and landscape and heroic deeds. Physically running along the roads and laneways of rural Ireland, he mentally explores the landscape of his dreams.
