    Young Donal (Tyrone McKenna), growing up alone with his mother Kate (Gillian Anderson) in Belfast, works after school for Good Joe (Ken Stott), a local greyhound trainer. As Donal`s talent with dogs becomes apparent he strikes a deal with his boss to own a promising greyhound, The Mighty Celt, if he can train it to win three successive races.
    Meanwhile each of their lives is profoundly affected by the reappearance of O (Robert Carlyle), an enigmatic figure from the past.
