ONCE is the inspirational tale of two

kindred spirits who find each other on

the bustling streets of Dublin. One

is a street musician who lacks the

confidence to perform his own songs.

The other is a young mother trying to

find her way in a strange new town.

As their lives intertwine, they discover

each other’s talents and push one

another to realize what each had only

dreamt about before.
