Timmy plays hurling, the fastest field sport in the world. He loves it. He hates it. Honest, brave and hard hitting. Spliced is a visceral account of his struggle to become an individual outside of the sporting institution that raised him. He wants to talk about identity, masculinity and mental health in a sports club.
