THE PEACEMAKER follows international mediator Padraig O'Malley, who helps make peace for others but struggles to find it for himself. The film takes us from Padraig's isolated life in Cambridge, Massachusetts to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth – from Northern Ireland and Kosovo to Nigeria and Iraq over five years – as he works a peacemaking model based on his own recovery from alcohol addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.

“A deeply moving portrait of its truly admirable, complex subject.”- Hollywood Reporter
