Ruby arrives in Skibberceannigh, “the World’s Most Liveable Community”, to a warm welcome from the friendly townsfolk.

All is not what it seems, however, and while out walking late one night, Ruby comes across a mysterious man who has no arms.

The man tells her of how the townspeople discriminate against him and set him tedious tasks to do by night and Ruby soon discovers that this shocking treatment of her new friend is just one of the town’s many dark secrets…

A large cast explore the themes of secrecy, control and the Irish psyche in this fast-paced and physical comedy-drama.
