Garage

Element Pictures

Josie (Pat Shortt) has spent 20 years as the caretaker of a crumbling petrol station in small-town Ireland. Despite loneliness and the fact that his neighbours treat him as figure of fun, he is always good natured, absurdly optimistic and, in his own peculiar way, happy; he has his place - it might not be great, but it his. Garage is the story of Josie's hapless search for intimacy over the course of a summer which sees his little niche threatened and his life changed forever.
