No Party for Billy Burns

Billy Burns is a would-be cowboy lost in the dreary fields of Cavan. Stranded at home with his grandfather and ridiculed around town for his innocent ways, Billy works for local ranchers, saving his money for a trip up to the big city, maybe to never come back.

When Billy falls in with local thug Ciaran and his long suffering girlfriend Laura, he finds the adventure and excitement he always looked for, but the local crew pick on the weak, as their cheap thrills and rough and tumble kicks find Billy broken and bruised, with little left to lose
