The Young Offenders
Inspired by a true story, writer-director Peter Foott's comical road movie centres on teenage best friends Conor (Alex Murphy) and Jock (Chris Walley), who are always getting into scrapes in inner-city Cork. In particular, bike thief Jock drives Garda Sergeant Healy (Dominic MacHale) to the brink of distraction with his antics. One day, news reaches Connor and Jack that a drug-trafficking boat has capsized off the coast of West Cork and 61 bales of cocaine, each worth seven million Euros, have been seized. Rumours persist that one bale of cocaine is missing. So the boys steal a pair of bikes and embark on an epic quest to locate the missing drugs, which they can sell to finance a brighter future away from the trials and tribulations of their home lives. Unfortunately, Sergeant Healy is on their trail and he intends to catch them red-handed.
