Plot Summary
This impressionistic film about memory and nostalgia focuses on an elderly man (Dermot Healy) in London who is pondering his younger days in Ireland. He is raised in a rural area on the west coast of the country, but eventually leaves to find work in England. He toils as a laborer for decades, often moving around with a group of Irish expatriates. The movie establishes a pensive, dream-like tone that is carried by the narration of the man, now isolated in a small room in a boarding house.
