SWUNG is a seductive, frank and revealing exploration of the secret underside of a very modern relationship.
David’s (Owen McDonnell) life is on the slide: he’s in the middle of a divorce and has seen his business go bust. Positive and supportive, his girlfriend Alice (Elena Anaya) is his rock, but she’s under pressure to find a good, compelling story for the magazine she writes for.
When she discovers that David has been logging onto swinging websites Alice is justifiably shocked until she realises an exposé of the local swinging scene could be just the ‘story’ she needs and, much to David’s surprise; her editor urges her to pursue it.
Following a comically nervous and awkward initiation, under the guidance of sexual free spirit Dolly (Elizabeth McGovern) events accelerate beyond their control and the once adoring couple become lost, raising fundamental questions of their relationship. In darkness, touched by many others, they will have to find themselves or lose each other forever.
SWUNG is the feature debut from award winning director Colin Kennedy and is based on the best-selling novel from author Ewan Morrison.
