From beyond the very limits of our imagination comes a stranger. Who is he? Where is he from? And why is he so fond of our black beer? Zonad (Simon Delaney) is from space…..probably. Or so the Cassidy family assume when they discover an apparent alien in a shiny red space suit and helmet passed out on the living room floor beside the drinks cabinet.

Real name Liam Murphy, Zonad is an alcoholic chancer who has escaped from a rehabilitation clinic. At first, Zonad tries to evade the warm welcome of the villagers, although the procession of wanton women and free beer gets the better of him. Why give up on a good thing?

A nutty comedy from co-directors and writers John Carney (Bachelor's Walk, On The Edge, Once) and Kieran Carney (Bachelor's Walk, The Last Furlong).
