Twelve years ago, Ray (David Wilmot) left town after his childhood sweetheart, Alice (Kerry Condon), dumped him, taking their daughter away from him. Now he must return home at the request of his ailing father, who wishes to see his granddaughter before it’s too late. But things take a turn for the absurd when Ray realises his daughter and her mother have built a new life with his former PE teacher, a controlling and regimented figure who is the direct opposite of Ray. After Ray is found sleeping in his beat-up car, Alice feels guilty enough to invite him to stay. But from his first bumbling efforts to get close to his daughter to the catastrophic effect his presence has on Frank – Ray manages to create chaos all around him.
Set in an affluent suburb in north County Dublin, this offbeat comedy and unconventional love story delights in the hilarity of everyday life.
