When Paddy gets sick, they are thrown into the messy world of public hospitals until Paddy find himself in a nursing home, plotting his escape.This is a touching and funny story of a relationship between an old man and his nephew as they attempt to navigate their way through the ups and downs of the Irish Health System.
