During a long hot summer in the 1970s, four boys roam free through a neglected rural paradise, until a tragedy strikes that sets them against the adult world and changes their lives forever.
When two of the boys are orphaned, the boys’ lives are shattered. The story unfolds through the eyes of the brothers’ best friend, Davy, who persuades the orphans to run away with him rather than be taken into care.
But as the adult world closes in on them, Davy takes it upon himself to fix the situation and armed with his wits and a loaded shotgun, goes out to tackle the problem head on. A film about friendships, loyalty and love pushed to the very limit.
An ultimately uplifting story of recovery with the bitter sweet sense that although something is lost, it can still be treasured.
