Synopsis / Plot
It's the 1930's and seven year old Liam is growing up in an Irish Catholic quarter across the Mersey River from Liverpool. He has a loving mother, his father's a responsible breadwinner and his older brother and sister are fond and helpful. Times are hard but Liam's family is a happy one. The kids are doing well in school and Dad's job is secure. Until he loses it. This is a child's eye view of one family's free fall into poverty during the depression era, rich with humanity and gallows humour necessary for survival.
