Robert, or Bobby, is a fourteen-year-old Irish youth living with his unmarried mother and his brother Dennis, who is four-years-old. The family relocates from Dublin to a small rural area on the outskirts of Ennis in County Clare. Robert's mother moves for two primary reasons—she wants to get Robert away from his criminal gang, and in turn she hopes to elude numerous debt collectors who pester her for money. The family moves into a small house on the property of PJ and Margaret Dooley and they pay the deposit and first rent with borrowed money.
