Two  boyhood best friends – Joe and Paddy – divided for 25 years by the tumult of the “Troubles”: when Joe returns home to Northern Ireland, his daughter Patricia brings the two men together for a reunion, with unespected results. What happened all those years ago? Can old wounds be healed? The answer is in equal parts hilarious and moving.
