With money tight in a boozy, middle-class 1980s Dublin household, youngest son Conor is forced to transfer from his private school to the Brothers in Synge Street where posh new boys are easy prey for the school bullies. Working on relationship advice and musical cues from his much-admired, louche, older brother, he forms a band to attract a sophisticated older woman who he persuades to appear in a series of music videos.
