In a series of character studies, director Cathal Black tells the story of Jimmy (Jimmy Brennan) and the people who end up living with him. After Jimmy, who is gay, leaves prison looking for a way to survive in the world, he finds an abandoned house in Dublin and settles in. Before long, others join him, including a pimp, a con man, and a drug pusher. At times poignant and perceptive, this short film lacks any real narrative and either for that reason or because of its length, goes no further than sympathetically examining these socially displaced people.
