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”

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
