The unlikely story of a Glaswegian visible artist, Stephen Skrynka, and his harmful life-long obsession with driving the ‘Wall of Loss of life’. Stephen desires of reworking the standard fairground bike attraction into an artwork type. However he underestimates the difficulties of mixing his inventive imaginative and prescient with the industrial instincts of his Irish ‘Petrolhead’ collaborators, Connie Kiernan and Michael Donohoe, the unique true-life inspiration for the cherished Irish movie, ‘Eat the Peach’.
After a devastating falling out, Stephen rashly decides to hand-build his personal Wall, out of recycled wooden, in a disused manufacturing facility on the River Clyde in Glasgow. Within the midst of the Pandemic, going through a disaster of cash and self-belief, Stephen’s desires appear doomed. However salvation arrives within the form of surprising comradeship, nameless donations and the kindness of strangers. Stephen builds his Wall. However can he journey it?
Worldwide launch coming quickly. Keep tuned!
