With the McDonagh family facing eviction from their halting site at the end of the week, ‘Back To The Future’-obsessed MARTIN (10) is only concerned with one thing – finishing building his own DeLorean replica from an old banger and scrap metal. His father JOHN PAUL has bigger concerns and hurtfully dismisses Martin’s pet project. Martin then experiences firsthand the discrimination travellers are subjected to from a settled family he encounters while out collecting scrap. John Paul catches his confused and upset son attempting to destroy the car and the two reconcile, instead teaming up to put the finishing touches to Martin’s DeLorean. They take it for a victory lap around the field and pack up the next day with a stronger bond than ever.
