“Then in a beautiful cloud of Holy, I go out the door to meet with my people, to see if I really am. With the angelus said, and two and six in my pocket, I am a rich and holy possible Jesus. I stop and talk to everyone I meet: ‘Hello, I might be Jesus.’”
Meet Pakie. An orphan, a storyteller, an adventurer, a survivor. He may not be the sharpest sandwich in the toolbox, but Pakie knows a thing or two about the history of his native town – from the vicious Vikings, to the less-than Christian Brothers. Pakie’s a laugh a minute… but Pakie’s got secrets. Secrets the God fearing people of Oggle may not be ready to hear.
Starring Peter Gowen (Charlie, Love/Hate, The Butcher Boy), and directed by Donal Gallagher (Love, Peace & Robbery, Bedbound), this is a hilarious and heart-breaking story of small towns and even smaller minds.
