Set in late 1960s Northern Ireland, Buddy (Jude Hill) is a young boy from a working-class family. They try their best to cope with The Troubles, with increasing turmoil and violence erupting all around them. In order to protect his family and escape the conflict, Buddy’s father (Jamie Dornan) looks to move his family elsewhere. With an ill grandfather, and a mother reluctant to leave Belfast despite the dangers, Buddy struggles to understand what’s best for the family, as what they all want at the end of the day is each other.
