Plot Summary:

Set in a divided Belfast in 1970, this is the story of two boys whose friendship breaks down the barriers. Based on Owen McCafferty's acclaimed play, it tells the tale of two kindred spirits obsessed with "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and how this infatuation leads them from fantasies into petty crime. They become their heroes and gain the courage to escape to try and escape to the barren Australian outback. From the makers of "About a Boy" and "Billy Elliot" comes a truly original comedy.
