When beloved Uncle Ben comes to stay, Gloria and Raymond's granny says that the Black Dog has climbed onto his back. Uncle Ben's business has failed. He can't afford his mortgage. He feels totally miserable. And this is happening to grownups all over Dublin. Granny tells them a secret - the Black Dog has stolen Dublin's funny bone. So Raymond, Gloria and hundreds of city children decide to get it back. But when they find the Black Dog, he sucks all joy and life and energy and breath out of them. They feel completely useless. Until Gloria remembers a very simple word…

A high-speed, high-adrenaline and highly surreal adventure which deals with the difficult topic of depression with a sensitive, humorous touch.
