‘The geese go north in the spring, in search of thawed coasts and endless daylight. They follow an instinct for catharsis: they don’t know what they’re looking for, but they know where to find it.’
Wild Geese tells the story of Phoebe Forde, an Irish trans woman living in Scandinavia with her anxious dog, Dolly. Overeducated and underpaid, Phoebe is finally settling into her new life when she unexpectedly reconnects with her first and only girlfriend from before her transition, igniting memories she thought she’d left behind.
Set over a single weekend, Wild Geese is an intimate and moving story about old flames, old lives, the comfort of home, and the pursuit of second chances.
