About the film:
In the background of the divided city of Belfast in 1970, the film tells the story of two boys, a Catholic and a Protestant, whose friendship overcomes any obstacle. Mickybo and John Joe both have a passion for: “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” with Paul Newman and Robert Redford. When the troubles plague Northern Ireland in 1970, the boys dream of escaping to Australia.
The film director Terry Law:”It’s about Belfast, but not the riots. The theme is childhood and the moment we understand that the world and our parents are not perfect”
