THE PEACEMAKER is an intimate portrait of international peacemaker Padraig O'Malley.

Padraig O'Malley is an Irish peacemaker, author and professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston who specializes in the problems of divided societies, such as South Africa, Iraq and Northern Ireland. He has written extensively on these subjects and has been actively involved in promoting dialogue among representatives of differing factions.

THE PEACEMAKER is an intimate portrait of international peacemaker 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 to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq – as he works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from 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.
