Daniel Buckley (Darragh Byrne) is a nervous teen with a stutter, struggling to navigate his way in small-town 80s Ireland, trying to woo costume designer Carla while taking driving lessons from nerdy Donna.

Having to grow up quickly following the mysterious disappearance of his father, Danny is often hindered by his eccentric would-be politician mother (Clelia Murphy), his fashion-conscious sister (Helena Geoghegan), and his budding rockstar brother (Jack Hickey).

Danny struggles to deal with his madcap family in this coming-of-age romantic comedy, directed by Ferdia Mac Anna (All About Eva) and written by Mac Anna and Mary Duffin.
