A meteor lands in the Dublin backyard where Mickey and his two siblings are living with their grandmother (Fricker) after the death of their parents. They think the rock is a gift from mom and dad (who now live up in the stars). But when the government takes the meteor and sends it to a university scientist (Molina) for study, the kids decide to get it back. And if this wasn't plot enough, the trio's junkie Uncle Pete (Myers), who promised to look after them, is in trouble with the mob. Don't be fooled--this is a gritty and thoughtful drama, not a kid flick or a comedy despite Myers presence.
