Kings (2007) Movie Poster

In the mid 1970s, a group of six young men left their homes in the West of Ireland, took the boat out of Dublin Bay and sailed across the sea to England in the hope of making their fortunes and returning home.

Thirty years later only one, Jackie Flavin, makes it home - but in a coffin. Jackie's five friends reunite at his wake where they are forced to face up to the reality of their alienation as long term emigrants who have no longer have any real place to call home.

"Kings" speaks directly to the dispossessed and disenfranchised who fill the streets of Ireland, to those with nowhere they feel they can really call home and shows us that what we can call home is always much closer than we think.

Based on the play by Jimmy Murphy.
