Set in small town Ireland in 1981, an anxious, stuttering teen struggles to save his demented family while caught in a love triangle between gorgeous playgirl Carla and the nerdy Donna.

DannyBoy Poster | Ferdia Mac Anna, Director

“I’ve wanted to make this comedy love story for years and I’m hugely excited by recreating the mad youth scene of Ireland in 1981 in the wonderfully cinematic big sky county of Kildare. We have a talented cast and crew, cool tunes and crazy dance moves on what we hope is a funny, life-affirming original tale.”
