    Every day Dinny directs his two sons, Sean and Blake in their own little house-play that tells the story of how this unconventional family left Cork and found themselves living in a council flat off the Walworth Road in London. On this day, Hayley from the local Tesco arrives on their doorstep with a forgotten bag of groceries and upsets the delicate fiction Dinny has been weaving all these years.
