Eight-year-old Harry (Hickey) believes he has special powers granted him through his birthplace being Mercury rather than Dublin - a belief boosted by visits to the Saturday morning film club and his lack of a father figure. An irresistible tale of memory, loss and the search for a better future. If you manage to sit through this without wilting into jelly at Hickey's painfully innocent performance, then you have the heart of a tyrant.
