It is 1975 in a small town near Dublin. The Bay City Rollers are topping the charts. Starsky and Hutch rule the television screen. In Northern Ireland, bombs are going off. And here, in this little town on the sea, a young boy's life is about to be changed forever. By day his father is a delivery man for the local bakery. He dreams of being a comedian by night- a famous performer, a hero, a star. But the future that is lying in wait for his family, in a story of childhood both funny and sad, will turn their whole world upside down.
