This film is about The Gnomes: three Irish guys who built a small, biologically intensive farm on a disused part of the Dublin City University (DCU) campus in Glasnevin, Dublin. It's a story about the use of land, the agency one has over their life, and the role of community in urban areas. It was included in both the Fastnet and Still Voices Film Festivals in 2020.

The Gnomes are Martin Matthews, Jason Maguire and Shane Matthews.
