    The most critically acclaimed short film ever made in Ireland, and winner of over forty international awards, this witty and visually imaginative comedy relates the childhood trials and tribulations of Philip, who is having a hard time at his new school. Perceived as a nerdy newcomer, Philip is continually harassed and bullied by fellow students, is never picked to play football, and is without a single friend. Since his comically pugnacious father is in prison, it is up to his mother to sort out Philip's nasty classmates, which she does with remarkable success.
