Fred lives a quiet, isolated life in his car, having lost all hope of improving his situation. That all changes when he forms an unlikely friendship with Cathal, a dope-smoking 21-year-old with a positive attitude, who becomes his ‘neighbor’. Sharing laughs (and hard times too), Fred and Cathal re-discover the simple pleasures of life.
Cathal is determined to make Fred sort his life out, and it works. Fred cleans up 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 and hides his ‘homelessness’ from Jules. At the same time, Cathal’s life is threatened by his escalating drug habit. As they grow closer, the influence of these three outsiders on each other will change their lives forever.
