Physically disabled but sharp-witted Billy Claven dreams of escaping his mundane existence. When a Hollywood film crew descends on a neighbouring island, and the eccentric inhabitants of Inishmaan find their lives disrupted, ‘Cripple Billy’ spies an opportunity.
As the island folk navigate the fortunes and challenges presented by the film crew’s arrival, McDonagh weaves a dark comedic tale shadowed by the tragedy and complexities of rural Irish living.
