The Peacemaker 

For a man who has been instrumental in brokering peace in conflict torn regions throughout the world for 30 years through patience, skill and empathy, it is jarring to see that Padarig O’Malley’s personal life is so wracked with turmoil. Filmmaker James Demo follows O'Malley over the course of five years as he goes from war zone to war zone, and then comes home to an empty apartment, and a past that bears the scars of addiction. Struggling against time and his own demons, can this formidable character find salvation for both the world and himself?
