  • Setting

    Outside Ennis, County Clare on 31 May 2019 (and, sometimes, 17 years previously).

  • Synopsis

    On a dark and stormy night, Barry, Cusack and Pa gather again for the anniversary of their childhood friend Liam – killed in a road accident when they were seventeen. Expecting a crowd and tearing into the cans, the three slowly realise they’re the only ones coming. Caught in the wake of their lingering grief, they confront their receding youth, their uncertain futures, and the ghost that has held them together.
