Fred Daly (Colm Meaney) returns from England to Ireland with very little going for him. At the midway point in his life he has no home and few apparent prospects. However, when 21-year-old Cathal (Colin Morgan) parks beside him, things abruptly begin to look up for Fred. A friendly and laid-back dope smoker, Cathal reawakens the spirit of life in Fred and even helps him seduce Finnish music teacher Jules (Milka Ahlroth). The trio form a close bond - one with the power to change their lives forever. ...Parked ( Jumissa )
