Rats is released from prison and needs to make some money; fast. To his dismay, things have changed dramatically during his absence; his mother no longer has time for him and his ex-bandmates alike. He wishes to help donate towards his obese aunty's trip to Lourdes. He struggles to find a job, yet never fails to find himself in a difficult situation.
When Michael McElhatton was researching the prison scenes for this film he went to one of Ireland's Prisons. While he was there he met prisoners who were huge fans of the series Paths to Freedom (2000) in which Rats first appeared. Some of the prisoners had taken the character of Rats to their hearts that they wrote some of Rats' sayings on their cell walls. See more »
"Spin the bottle" is hilarious! This comedic script is brilliantly acted as well as directed.From the satirical spin on boy bands to the insane journey of Rats and his employment capers, I was laughing throughout the film. "Spin the bottle" is brilliant!
