And Then Come The Nightjars

And Then Come the Nightjars is a tender portrait of male friendship and a requiem to rural life.

South Devon, 2001. Jeff is a vet with a problem. Michael is a cattle farmer who is a problem.

The two men have a begrudging respect for each other and a blossoming friendship based on sharing a fag, a nip of whisky and boisterous banter. But when Foot and Mouth sweeps through the British countryside, communities are thrown into chaos.

Michael watches, in grief stricken disbelief, the shooting of his beloved cows. He also watches his friend brandish the gun.

By turns heart-breaking and hilarious, And Then Come the Nightjars is a tender portrait of male friendship and a requiem to rural life.
