Summary
"A close-knit team of six young men sailed away from Ireland in 1977 with dreams of a better life. Thirty years later, they reunite at the wake after one of them suddenly dies. Hardened by years of disappointment and drink, they quickly realize that their bonds of friendship have weakened, provoking regret, jealousy and tension. As they reveal their guilty feelings about their dead friend and their past, they are confronted with the bitter reality of their lives-- and the appalling truth of their friend's death."-Container
