For four bachelors of Killcoulin’s Leap, life is slowly passing them by. The remote Western Irish town holds no future for them, no career opportunities, very few eligible women, and (save for the handful of geriatrics their band plays for on Saturday night) no night-life to speak of.
It seems they’re stuck to live out the rest of their lives in withering boredom. But when one of their mates decides to find his fortune elsewhere, the others put their heads together. If they could just gather enough money to get themselves out of this town, they could all escape this hopelessness.
