The unlikely story of a Glaswegian visual artist, Stephen Skrynka, and his dangerous life-long obsession with riding the ‘Wall of Death’.  Stephen dreams of transforming the traditional fairground motorbike attraction into an art form.  But he underestimates the difficulties of combining his artistic vision with the commercial instincts of his Irish ‘Petrolhead’ collaborators, Connie Kiernan and Michael Donohoe, the original true-life inspiration for the cherished Irish film, ‘Eat the Peach’.

After a devastating falling out, Stephen rashly decides to hand-build his own Wall, out of recycled wood, in a disused factory on the River Clyde in Glasgow.  In the midst of the Pandemic, facing a crisis of money and self-belief, Stephen’s dreams seem doomed.  But salvation arrives in the shape of unexpected comradeship, anonymous donations and the kindness of strangers. Stephen builds his Wall.  But can he ride it?

Worldwide release coming soon. Stay tuned!
