A young boy plans his revenge when he is unfairly punished for an innocent mishap.
Curly Mulligan (Gavin Dowdall) is a pupil at a Christian Brothers boarding school, where he is on kitchen duty every morning. It is his job to bring a full fried breakfast to headmaster Brother Ledwidge (Frank McDonald). As his own breakfast consists of a plain bowl of porridge, he drools longingly over the sausages and rashers as he carries them down the corridors. When Brother Ledwidge finds a hair in his breakfast one morning, all hell breaks loose.
Set in the not-too-distant past this is a quirky little drama about a resilient young man surviving in a strict church-run institution.
