Synopsis

Over the Halloween weekend of 1987, three young brothers embark on an epic quest: to win and bring back to their dying father a replacement for his beloved watch, which came from an amusement arcade in Ballybunnion. Noel (17), Paudie (11) and Scwally (7) steal the local bread van and set off for Ballybunnion. It will be an off-beat and moving journey which  – after encounters that will fortify them for the challenge of their father’s impending death – can only lead them home.
