Description: To be able to lead an independent and free life, industrious but introverted Albert hides a secret from the world, especially his fellow staff at a Dublin hotel. The encounters with decorator Hubert Page fuel Albert's dreams, not only of a better life, but of being able to share it with someone special.

Unusual period drama featuring Oscar-nominated performances.
