Every day Dinny directs his two sons, Sean and Blake, in his own little house-play that tells the story of how his unconventional family left their beloved Cork, almost twenty years ago, and found themselves living in a council flat on the Walworth Road in London.  On this day, an unexpected and unwelcome guest arrives on their doorstep.  Her presence upsets the delicate fiction Dinny has been weaving all these years and threatens to break the vicious psychological control he has over his sons.
