About This Show

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, young Cripple Billy (Ryan Manning), living with his "aunties" Kate (Jean Aviles) and Eileen (Jane MacFarlane), learns that a Hollywood director is making a movie on a nearby island. Kate and Eileen took in the disabled Billy after his parents drowned. Two other young people on the island, Helen (Charlene Smith), whom Billy harbors a crush, and her brother Bartley (Joshua Pantner) also want to be in the film. Billy convinces Babbybobby (John Stange) to give him a ride in his boat to the neighboring island. Billy’s departure and the film provide ripe material for the resident island gossip JohnnyPateenMike (David Dubov). A doctor (Brian Turley) and the aged Mammy (Jane Squier Bruns) add to the indelible island characters. How the story unfolds from here will be to the delight of audiences.
