Synopsis

Two 10-year-old boys on either side of the religious divide in 1970s Belfast make friends and, inspired by the movie Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, head off to Australia. Based on Owen McCafferty's acclaimed play, this light-hearted portrait of the lives of two unlikely lads steers clear of the sort of cliches normally related to The Troubles - but that's not to say it isn't grounded in reality.
