Get Up and Go tells the story of Coilin and Alex, two friends in Dublin at the wrong end of their 20’s whose dreams of artistic greatness haven’t quite worked out. When Alex discovers that his girlfriend is pregnant, he refuses to allow her derail his plans to leave Dublin for the bright lights of London. Meanwhile Coilin’s carefully constructed world of hopes, dreams and expectations begins to come crumbling down around him. Set against the backdrop of famous Dublin locations, pubs, and clubs, Get Up and Go shows a youthful and vibrant Dublin, rarely seen on film.
