Fred Daly returns to Ireland with nowhere to live but his car. Then dope-smoking 21-year-old Cathal parks beside him and brightens up his lonely world. Encouraged by Cathal, Fred meets attractive music teacher Jules. Growing closer, these three outsiders are set on a course that will change their lives forever.
“With a documentary background, I’ve made plenty of films that tried to offer insight into social issues. But, too often the issue can get in the way of an absorbing story that might reach people and have a deeper impact. I needed to make this film to offer a different language to an audience that hopefully might provoke thought and some understanding of characters that can too often be presented as stereotypes”, says director Darragh Byrne.
