« Go back
Irishman Patrick Shaw (Clarke) enters the U.S. illegally with his wayward friend Seamus O’Sullivan (Horgan). Landing in New York, the pair start out with dreams of striking it rich, but soon find themselves in dead-end jobs and drifting apart. As Seamus pursues various schemes, the more cautious Patrick finds himself devoting time to looking after Tom (Malachy McCourt) an alcoholic author down on his luck, and courting Helen (Beverley Elder), a struggling actress who’s trying to extricate herself from a sordid trophy relationship with a much older man. Everything falls apart when Tom hit’s rock bottom, Seamus becomes more reckless and Patrick must battle with Helen's possessive ex-boyfriend Jeffrey (Roger Davis). Find out what happens next in this luminous award winning slice of life drama about a young mans extraordinary search for an ordinary life.
