From the makers of box office smash hit Billy Elliot and the highly-acclaimed director of East Is East comes a unique story of two unlikely friends who choose to take life head-on in the face of difficult circumstances. Michael Connolly's life is passing him by until one day he meets the irrepressible Rory O'Shea, who has a plan that will change their lives forever. Outsmarting the system, the unlikely pair manage to leave Carrigmore Home for the Disabled and land their very own flat. They employ the headstrong but inexperienced Siobhan to take care of their every need. With their newfound friendship and independence, life is theirs for the taking, but not without consequences...
Wonderful, Inspiring Movie!

Highly Recommended Movie, Five Stars*****
I was incredibly touched by the story of these 2 people who inspite their disabilities, managed to communicate and understand each other. One of them has such unintelligible speech while the other is completely paralyzed..both forever confined on a wheelchair. They formed a binding friendship and managed to leave the care home to live independently in their own flat. Shed a few tears through their struggles. Laugh with them and discover humor in life. The actors were brilliant and delivered such a touching, moving and extremely believable performance!
