Ronan Connolly is slowly enabling his oldest brother’s death.
As Kier’s lone caretaker, Ronan is fiercely loyal to the brother who raised him, means well, and doesn’t even recognize what he’s doing. All Ronan knows is that he’s using his hard-earned money to keep Kier sustained with the only things he’ll consume – booze, cigarettes, and pizza bagels – because his stubborn brother is both unable and unwilling to venture out from the Old Colony Projects into their rapidly gentrifying South Boston neighborhood.
All this changes when Ronan catches Kier having a “conversation" with the baby sister they were forced to give up for adoption decades ago. This sight, combined with a toilet full of bloody puke, compels Ronan to reluctantly seek help from their estranged brother Mickey, a Priest in Los Angeles who left 15 years earlier and never looked back.
When Father Mickey shows up with a surprise guest on November 1st – the Catholic All Saints’ Day holiday – intent on getting Kier into rehab, an impromptu reunion leads to all the old family tensions resurfacing and a botched intervention that has everyone questioning how far you can ever really stray from your home.
