Titled after the autobiography of Mici MacGowan, who left his native Donegal for the United States in the late 1880s, this documentary portrays the Irish experience in America at its harshest. MacGowans early life as a migrant worker traveling between Ireland and Scotland acts as prelude to his departure for America and subsequent trek to the Yukon in search of gold. Narrated by passages from MacGowans book and illustrated with footage from documentary and fiction films of the period, Rotha Mor an tSaoil won Best Irish Documentary prize at the Irish Film and Television Academy Awards (1998).
