Written by Kate O’Riordan, ‘Smother’ is a family thriller about deeply buried secrets and their unintended consequences, set in a small town on the wild and rugged coast of Clare.
Family matriarch Val is a devoted mother who is determined to protect her family and particularly her three daughters Jenny, Anna and Grace, at any cost. When Val Ahern’s husband Denis is found dead at a foot of a cliff close to their home the morning after a family party, Val begins to interrogate the events that unfolded the night before.
The deeper Val delves into her family’s secrets the more she realises how her late husband’s controlling, manipulative behaviour had a deep affect on each member of the family…Could one of her own family have been driven to murder?
