When a middle class family are forced to downsize as part of the 1980’s recession, middle child Conor (Ferdia Walsh Peelo) has to leave his comfortable middle-class private school and move into a tough inner city public school. A loner at school - his parents are close to breaking up - his only friend is his music obsessed elder brother (Jack Reynor). However, when he spots a mysterious girl across the playground and, like many a smitten suitor before him, asks her to star in a music video for his band. The only problem is, he has yet to find his bandmates or his own musical style.
John Carney was born and raised in Dublin, and got his start playing bass in the early lineup of „The Frames“ and directing music videos. He made his feature directorial debut with „November Afternoon“ (1996) before going on to direct Cillian Murphy and Stephen Rea in „On the Edge“ (2001), and his former Frames bandmate Glen Hansard in the international hit „Once“ (2006). His other films include „Zonad“ (2009), co-directed with his brother Kieran Carney, and „Begin Again“ (2013), which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and starred Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley.
