Synopsis

This debut feature from shorts filmmaker, writer and theatre director John McIlduff is a darkly comic road movie that follows Eddie (Nigel O’Neill), a 50-year old ex-accountant, and Liz (Aoife Duffin), his junkie son’s girlfriend, as they travel across Northern Ireland in a bid to pick up a lamb and thus save the son’s neck. En route, they fumble their way through a series of comic, tragic and disturbing adventures. Liz struggles with her own drug addiction, crippling sensitivity and desire to connect with her disabled son who lives with foster parents. Eddie, an overweight and depressed ex-accountant, does his best to assume the role of drug trafficker but his concern for the lamb’s welfare and his birdwatching hardly help his attempt at a tough-guy image.
