The town of Ballywood, Ireland has a cash flow problem. To avert foreclosure, the townspeople devise a poetry contest in hopes of collecting enough entry fees. Con-artist, Jimmy of South Central L.A., on the run from bill collectors and a jilted lover, is the lucky winner. Jimmy, who relocates to Ballywood, has always dreamed of living on an island. Meanwhile the townspeople are expecting an American of Irish descent. What follows is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy with romance, heart, and a great message about community and friendship.
