The ever-popular tale of two Traveller boys who escape the harsh reality of their grim lives in a Dublin high-rise with the aid of a magical white horse. Papa Reilly (Gabriel Byrne) drinks himself into a stupor after the death of his wife. His sons Ossie (Ciarán Fitzgerald) and Tito (Rúaidhrí Conroy) are comforted by the gift of a white stallion, Tír na nÓg, from their grandfather (David Kelly). When their beautiful steed is stolen, they begin a quest to retrieve him and head west, with their father and police in hot pursuit. Written by Jim Sheridan, the film’s blend of youthful adventure, adult travails and a touch of magic makes for a wholly captivating family classic.
