Excitement hits the island of Inishmore and the sleepy village of Inishmaan when the local gossip, Johnnypateeenmike, announces that a Hollywood film crew is coming to film a movie on a nearby island. No one wants to go more than the orphaned cripple Billy. After a life of teasing from his neighbors like the tempestuous Slippy Helen and her brother Bartley, Cripple Billy longs to escape the island and his life with his well-meaning but crazy foster aunts. When he sets sail for the film set to chase his dreams, he finds answers to questions he never could have found in Inishmaan, but finds that those same answers lead him home.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him.
