The publication of Frankie Starlight's first novel causes him to reminisce about his childhood. The story begins with his mother, Bernadette (Anne Parillaud), escaping from war torn France in a GI troop ship and arriving in Cork alone, penniless and pregnant. The local customs man attempts to win her favour, treating the newborn Frankie like his own son, but competition arrives in the form of Bernadette's long-lost American lover.
