From Lucozade to Kylie Jenner lip kits, this is a fresh, modern look at what it means to be young in Ireland today.
Cuckoo examines what happens when Pingu's non-binary identity rubs up against the gender expectations of those around them.
Trying to navigate sexual politics and wanting more than the life that's handed to them, Carroll's teenagers are wild, funny, awful, and utterly human.
Cuckoo considers the bond of friendship through the shifting turbulence of adolescence as Iona and Pingu fight to figure out what they want.
Carroll dissects the true cost of belonging and reflects on how hard it is to break away from the place you grew up.
Everyone hates Iona.
Everyone except Pingu.
Fitting in is hard when one of you can't shut up and your silent best friend wears a tuxedo to school every day.
Sick of the ceaseless bullying and despair, Iona and Pingu decide to get the fuck out of Dublin.
Turns out that emigrating is a great way to get noticed by the cool kids.
Loving the attention, Iona is drunk on her new-found popularity until she discovers she's messed with the wrong crowd.
In a world where reputation must be defended tooth and nail, this can only end in disaster for all involved.
