Barrett, Gerald
Living in a social housing suburb in Dublin with his mother, John ekes out a meager living as a nocturnal taxi driver. One day, he returns home to find his mother, Jean, unconscious from an alcohol overdose. With no savings or insurance, John is forced to offer his services to a petty criminal to help pay for his mother's costly rehab program. Although his mother violently rejects John's attempts to support and unite his family, John faces his challenges, even if that means getting mixed up in the complicated world of human trafficking. Winner of Best Actor - World Cinema, Drama at the Sundance Film Festival. "A small but pretty impressive indie from Ireland with top-notch acting." - Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
