Set in Boston's tough, working class, Irish neighbourhood known as ‘Southie’, GOOD PEOPLE is the powerful and ferociously funny story of a single mom who loses her job at a dollar store. Desperate to provide for her disabled adult daughter and avoid eviction, she tracks down an old flame and begs him for work. He is a successful doctor who has escaped his Southie past and lives in wealthy Chestnut Hill. Their opposing worlds collide, revealing what it means to be destitute in a culture that pursues the American dream and believes opportunity comes to those who work hard enough.
