Jim and his family are Travellers living in Ireland.  Jim doesn't want to go to school where the kids call him a tinker or dirty gyp or worse.  But the law is the law and the Irish government has dictated that the Travellers must send their children to school.  Now Jim has to spend time with the buffers or settled children.  And he knows the taunts and beatings will begin.  What he doesn't expect is that there is one buffer girl who is kind to him.  Is that enough to get him through this?
