The story of Jack a young Irish Traveller boy. Who also has hearing difficulties, his only escape from an overbearing world of emotional deafness is bareback on his beloved painted Mare. Jack seeks to escape a world of noise devoid of understanding, a father absent emotionally and a community that fears his difference. The perpetual outsider, he inhabits a world that sees him as an "Innocent Boy", a lad residing on the fringes of society, not even fully accepted in his own community. A community ostracized in Irish society an ethnic group still coming to terms with its own pain and embracing its own identity. What chance does Jack have when everyone is too ashamed to listen?
