After being refused welfare benefits and losing all hope of improving his situation, Fred lives a quiet, isolated life in his car. But everything changes when he forms an unlikely friendship with Cathal, a dope-smoking 21-year-old with a positive attitude, who becomes his ‘neighbour’. Sharing laughs, and the hard times too, Fred and Cathal discover the simple, free pleasures of life. Cathal is determined to make Fred sort his life out, and it works. Fred modifies his car, beats the welfare system and makes a friend in Jules, an attractive music teacher who lives alone nearby. But Fred struggles with his pride to tell Jules about his ‘home’, and Cathal’s life is threatened by his escalating drug habit. As they all grow closer, the influence that these three outsiders have on each other will change their lives forever in this triumphant story of friendship, hope, and perseverance.
