P. J. is a truck driver with a workingman’s pride in his job. The backbone of his modest existence is made up of his partner Ronnie, her two kids bordering on adulthood, singing at the local pub and fishing with his best mate, Jono.
But when P. J. fails a mandatory eye test and loses his driver’s license, his life unravels. In the face of his imminent future as a blind man, the ever pragmatic Ronnie upscales her wedding dress business, with the help of her ambitious older sister Bernadette, to become the breadwinner of the family.
But P. J., refusing to accept the loss of his sight and unable to cope with the rapidly altering family dynamics, takes everyone on a tumultuous emotional journey to the very edge until, with Ronnie's help, he finds himself a new place in the world.
