Mixing pop culture know-how with a bit of existential soul-searching, Melonfarmer puts the mean streets of Dublin firmly back on the map for the 90's, creating an incredibly funny vision of the lost generation of Irish who never quite got lost.

This is the world as seen through the eyes of twenty-something Sean, on the fast track down into the depths of his angst filled, fantasy-fuelled mind. On the way, he quotes Joseph Beuys: "everything must be changed"; by the end, just about everything is.
