When John is sent to fetch his younger brother Joe from the turnip field, he's shocked to find the normally placid lad sulking and angry. Waiting for Patrick, Joe is desperate to stay a little longer. As the two brothers while away the hours they talk of their dreams and ambitions outside of the small Irish hamlet that is their home. They play. They fight. They marvel at the skies and the universe whilst debating important issues such as whether Fr ‘Gripper’ Murphy really is the strongest priest in the world and the shocking possibility that the recently crowned ‘Queen of the Plough’ was fixed all along.
Everything was perfect in the turnip field.
But then the weather changed.
