In Co. Kerry, Ireland, 12-year-old Mully (Charlie Reid) has lost his mother, and discovers his debt-ridden father (Lochlann Ó Mearáin) stealing the charity money theyve raised in her name.

Grabbing the cash, Mully steals a taxi and is shocked to find a woman, Joy (Olivia Colman), in the back seat with a baby. A straight-talking solicitor who didnt expect to get pregnant, Joy is struggling with motherhood and planning to give her baby to a friend who will raise the child as her own.

She joins Mully on a wild journey across Ireland, stealing cars, hitch-hiking, catching ferries and breaking police barricades. Mullys father is in hot pursuit and Joy is desperate to escape and leave her life behind. But these two outlaws gradually bond, discovering that both felt unloved by parents, yet both have a lot of love to give. Together, they find a happier way to journey through life – and find love in each other.
