Synopsis


Inspired by real events, Killymuck is a housing estate built on a paupers' graveyard in 1970s Ireland.


Niamh navigates life through the parameters of growing up, with the trials and tribulations of being a kid from the benefit class system.


Lack of opportunity, educational barriers, impoverishment, addiction and depression are the norms as the struggle to escape the underclass stereotype becomes a priority.


From school trips organised as cross-community excursions to unite a fractured post troubles town, to finding the humour within an estate crippled with misfortune.
