  • Synopsis

    Dermot, a single man in his thirties, lives a quiet life alone working as a postman by day and dreaming of being a world famous DJ by night. Suddenly his peaceful and ordered life is shattered by the arrival of his old friend Mick. Mick has been kicked out by his girlfriend and looks to Dermot for a place to stay. He brings with him a bag of unwashed clothes, very little money and a business plan. As the guys begin living together, memories are evoked of the last time they shared accommodation, seventeen years ago, for a summer in Manhattan, when they both worked in a restaurant to earn their college fees, and sang male duets together to impress girls.
