Looking after his sickly father in the depths of rural Ireland, Tommy has succumbed to a life of loneliness and isolation. Dylan, his older and more accomplished sister, has returned home to offer a solution that could give Tommy a chance to live the life he deserves. However, letting go of things is much more difficult than both of them had first imagined.
A synth-driven, ambient and sparse soundtrack accompanies this film, composed and produced by Kevin Corcoran.
"The soundtrack for Backwater hit all the right notes. The film takes place in a bleak setting, but there is a lot going on with the characters. I needed a soundtrack that reflected that; to show the hearts of the characters, or the turmoil deep within. It worked, and there wasn't a dry eye when it was screened at the Galway Film Fleadh." - Brendan McCallion, director of 'Backwater'.
The soundtrack is available as an EP on all streaming and download services.
