Sean O Se's long and illustrious career as "a giant of Irish music" has touched all bases in the Irish music business. His unique, unforgettable tenor voice was nurtured in a family of singers. Sean's voice first reached a wide audience in Ireland in the 1960s working with composer Sean O Riada in the group Ceoltoiri Chualann which catapulted Irish traditional music onto the concert stage and into the international arena. The film explores Sean's musical life within the contexts of his deep attachment to the Irish language, West Cork and the Beara peninsula, and his passion for his career in teaching and education administration in Cork City. The film features live performances and interviews with longtime associates from the worlds of music and education.
