PENTECOST

Ireland, 1977. Eleven-year-old Damian Lynch is called in at the last moment to serve as an altar boy at an important mass in the local parish. Following his last appearance as an altar boy, when he knocked Father O'Toole off the altar, he faces a choice: either conform to the status quo or serve an extended ban from his passion in life, football.
