County Kilburn

Synopsis

In the heart of Irish London, beer is thicker than water.

In Kilburn's square mile there are 63 Irish pubs. This is the story of just one.

Mickey, the pub's young barmen, is sure that his job is preventing him from 'getting on' in life. So he's returning to Ireland to take up a job with his brother. This, his last week, should be his most enjoyable.

Fat chance. The landlord is in hospital, and Mickey is left in charge. The regulars appear on cue, taking the same seats in front of the same drinks at the same time as every other day. If only everything else about them was as predictable.

With their eccentricities, ravings and antics, Mickey's own girl trouble, and the bizarre characters that pass through the pub, it's now shaping up to be the worst week of his life.

But as the last day approaches and the madness reaches its climax, Mickey comes to understand the real people behind the regulars and, more importantly, that for all of them the pub represents a home from home - a haven where all their problems can be forgotten. He'd be crazy not to stay.

Lock in. Drink up. Pass out.
