Pádraic, though nice and well liked by the islanders, is too "dull" for Colm, who wishes to spend the remainder of his life composing music and doing things for which he will be remembered.  Pádraic's life is destabilised by the loss of one of his few friends; as Pádraic grows increasingly distressed at the rejection,

 With help from his sister and a troubled young islander, Pádraic sets out to repair the damaged relationship by any means necessary. However, as Colm's resolve only strengthens, he soon delivers an ultimatum that leads to shocking consequences.
