There is hope for all of us, no matter how bleak things might seem!

The story revolves around a Cavan man who is shipped off to London at the age of 17… goes through bouts of depression, obesity and anger issues…finds and loses love, comes back to Ireland to more misfortune and mayhem and yet there is HOPE. This is a story full of hope, where laughter and tears join hands and race us through forty years of a life, not much different to our own. This is Seamus O’Rourke doing what he does best, storytelling.
