Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

The Pipe follows a West of Ireland crab fisherman, 'The Chief', whose life is flung into turmoil by the arrival of Shell Oil in the bay where his family have fished for generations, and in a desperate attempt to protect his livelihood, he steers his 40 foot crab boat directly into confrontation with the worlds largest pipe-laying vessel, Solitaire.

The Pipe is a story of a community tragically divided, and how they deal with a pipe that could bring economic prosperity or destruction to a way of life shared for generations.
