Three young Irish growing up in the unromantic Ireland of the 1930's... As children they meet around a secret Druid's stone for illegal smokes... They follow very different paths, but later their lives reconnect in surprising ways when the Stone is destroyed and the village is bitterly divided... At last, however, they all find their own hard-won enlightenments.
