Trapped in the close community where he lives in Dublin, eighteen year old Finbar climbs the ghostly half-finished flyover that overhangs his housing estate... and disappears.
No word is heard and no body is found. For three years the community investigates, mourns, parties and finally elevates Finbar to cult status.
Danny, his reluctant best friend, determines to discover the truth behind Finbar's disappearance. This leads him on an extraordinary mythic journey across Europe to Scandinavia where, in the tango hall at the end of the world, Danny learns a lesson about what holds people together and what tears them apart.
