A pair of age­ing, rur­al bach­e­lor broth­ers arrive at a point in their lives, where deci­sions have to be made about cer­tain things… well the buy­ing of a tele­vi­sion for one… and one sub­ject leads to anoth­er and the next thing, they’re bring­ing up all kinds of ‘auld shite’ that could have been left under the bed along with every­thing else. Eugene McPart­land is wok­en by his broth­er Pat in the mid­dle of the night in 1979. Not only does Pat wake him, but he has his good suit on him too… and a light on in the bed­room and anoth­er on the land­ing… and as well as burn­ing up the elec­tric, he now wants to talk…
