Synopsis
Sent by their ne'er-do-well widower dad from their native U.S. to live in Ireland with their dreary old aunts, James and younger brother Pete do everything they can to raise cash for return tickets. Brazenly atheistic in front of his aunts and the local priest, James gives moral support to drunk gambler Tom. Like moneymakers before him, James takes advantage of the law of supply and demand. With porn magazines banned in Ireland, he buys a stock of them from Brit sellers and sells them to willing male customers, even getting the cops in on a bit of the action. Before long, James, with Pete, has a real business going. Crooks Bill the Bookie and his thuggish enforcer, Bill the Breaker get wind of James' action and take things into their own hands.
