 Title  Stella Days
Set in a small town, in 1956, the locals were getting their first electric power line. The priest embraced it, but many in the town feared it and the changes it would bring. The question was whether to reject or embrace the influence of the outside world; stay safe or share in the modern conveniences of electricity, cinemas and such. It was a time of great transition in Ireland - a time when the first cracks in the authority of the church appeared. The priest was caught in the middle. Rarely was such an in-depth portrait of a Catholic priest shown on film. It was not the electricity, but the outside ideas the ultimately proved to be the more dangerous to the community.
