  • Synopsis

    A house-swap between friends brings Sicily to Dublin and Dublin to Sicily. In Sicily, the sun is blazing and the limoncello is flowing. Conan and Katie are keen to explore the land of Dionysius and Don Corleone. But soon they will be hanging out with mummies and nosey neighbours, while trying desperately to realise why they ever got together in the first place. Meanwhile in Dublin, the summer skies are full of rain and Sinéad and Evan realise that the life they left behind is waiting for them. Sinéad’s old fiancé is on the scene, her parents think she’s a traitor and Evan is acting like a second generation yank in search of his roots.
