With the disappointment of a whole community on his shoulders, Finbar dives from a flyover and disappears. No body is ever found. The community is paralised. But it is Finbar's best friend, Danny, that feels his loss the most. Even with the creation of the 'Find Finbar' committee and the release of a pop song in his memory, Finbar remains missing. Then there is a phone call in the middle of the night. Danny sets off to the beautifully harsh landscapes of Sweden to track down the friend he lost three years ago. Danny expects to find Finbar, what he didn't expect was to find himself.
A little gentle gem

Nice to come across a film that you expect not too much of but turns out to be entertaining and interesting. At the start it is the typical Dublin boys,and it drifts along with a few laughs and some nice touches. Finbar himself would seem like little loss,not the greatest of craic,but the film takes off when the search for the missing"hero"moves outside Ireland. The odd-ball characters are nicely drawn and the whole film takes on a different rather quirky style. Worth staying through the first half hour and reminds you that good films are not all big budget.
