Based on the second of Roddy Doyle's "Barrytown" trilogy, which includes The Commitments and The Van, The Snapper is a warmly comic and moving look at working class Irish life - full of vibrant and eccentric characters, heartaches and laughs. Sharon Curley is 20, works in a Dublin supermarket, lives at home and is pregnant. If that isn't bad enough, she adamantly refuses to name the father. In turn shocked, concerned, defensive, embarrassed and angry, her own father, Dessie, is determined to support her but as the small town is driven into a frenzy of gossip, his loyalty is soon put to the test. As speculation, suggestion and rumour mount will Sharon manage to keep her secret intact? Will Dessie continue to stand by his daughter and how will the 'snapper' be welcomed into the world?
