Seamus Lambe is a depressive, bedridden, failed Irish actor who verbally tortures his visiting adult children with pontifications and non sequiturs. 

Seamus' oldest son Martin is tormented by grief and concern because little sister Kate has disappeared to London. Matty, an albino, has escaped to New York; his reasons become clear when he returns home and is repeatedly called "Snowball" by his hateful father. The larger problem, apparently, is that their mother died nine years ago, which emotionally crippled everyone and has Martin shouting at statues of the Virgin Mary because she deserted Jesus on the cross.
