The Drummer and the Keeper


1 Hr. 44 Min.

Screening format: DCP

Ordered to recover at a home for the neurodiverse following his most recent breakdown, bipolar drummer in an up-and-coming Dublin rock band Gabriel is made to spend time with Christopher, a teenager with Asperger's syndrome and a passion for soccer. Antipathy soon gives way to genuine friendship, as these two lonely souls discover in one another what they've been missing. The very definition of heartwarming, The Drummer and the Keeper is a feel-good story of (bi)polar opposites connecting against all odds.
