TFF: "An unemployed father cannot afford a birthday present for his son, so he plans something a bit more unorthodox."
"It's Alex's ninth birthday and he's been anticipating a trip to Old Trafford for a present. Instead of Manchester, he finds himself heading towards Country Armagh in a pissing rain. Alex and his dad have started the day with a visit to the dole, making Alex quite pessimistic towards his surprise adventure waiting in Armagh. After a couple of cautionary prep talks it's time for the H hour. Alex's dad explains that he's taken him to nothing less than the best apple tree in the world."
AA: A droll rogue story of a birthday surprise off the beaten track. With good performances, a fine sense of atmosphere, and a sense of a maverick experience.
