Based on John Carney’s short film of the same name (never released), the feature film version concerns an escaped convict name Liam (Simon Delaney) who fools a whole Irish village into thinking he’s a visitor from outer space. Zonad, a strange visitor comes to the town of Ballymoran at the same time as a meteorite shower and is taken in by the Jenny Cassiday (Janice Byrne) and her family. He’s also accepted by the gullible locals as an extraterrestrial.
