Paddy

It’s the late 70’s in London and a new generation is asking questions and finding answers, It’s called PUNK, and it doesn’t matter what you are or where you’re from. Patrick, a young Londoner growing up in the 1970’s, questions his identity. Living with his widowed mother and younger sister he’s trying to honour his late Father's memory by learning Irish music, but he discovers another music. One that speaks for him, one that’s being created by people like him, first generation Irish.
