Tagline: A Journey Of The Heart.

Plot: Caan portrays a disillusioned Chicago high-school teacher who decides to make a pilgrimage to Ireland to learn the truth about his father, whom he never met. He takes along his troubled nephew, who spends his days falling in love with a local school girl. The film shifts between the present and the past, as we learn the story of what happened to Caan's father. A Quinn Brothers trifecta (Paul wrote and directed, Aidan acted, and Declan photographed), this is a personal - though not autobiographical - tale that rises above Clicheland due to the subtle, heartwarming performances.
