“Stones In His Pockets” takes place in a scenic spot near a small town in County Kerry Ireland which has been taken over by an American Hollywood film crew. Charlie Conlan and Jake Quinn have been employed as extras on the film and tell the story of the impact this movie has on their local community.
“Stones” depicts the local excitement and enthusiasm at being part of a huge movie. However, the glamour quickly fades as the reality of being an extra kicks in. Charlie and Jake play thirteen other eccentric and eclectic characters between them, including Caroline, the American movie star who struggles to do a convincing Irish accent; Clem, the English director; and Mickey, a local extra in his seventies. Together they tell the story of local teenager, Sean Harkin, who meets a tragic end. Now, the town must come to terms with his death and the apparent disinterest from the film crew who, initially, are unwilling to interrupt filming to let the extras go to the funeral. Jake blames himself for not helping Sean when he was in need. The two men decide to rewrite Charlie’s script to tell Sean’s story, but Clem informs them that it isn’t exciting or glamorous enough to ever succeed.
