Wren Boys

On Boxing day, Father Conor, a Catholic priest, accompanies his nephew Seamus to Cork prison. During his sermon he has just tried to discourage a tradition, according to which on that day boys kill and bury a wren, as a farewell to the past year. What he himself is planning to do at the prison will go against all traditions. But not everybody is ready to accept it.
