This piece reflects the terrible pressure felt by members of the rural farming community in Ireland since the onset of the economic recession in 2008. In these cases, families and homes are disrupted by the violence of poverty and gnawing despair.

Speaking on the theme that inspired this work, Deborah commented: "Many are living lives of quiet desperation, with foreclosures and bankruptcies more and more common. Many farming families see no way forward."
