Ordinary Man

AJL Films

Jack and his brother Jimmy are owners of bog land and along with hired hand Davy slog away cutting the turf by day, but where Jack is a proud hard working man, Jimmy dreams of a better life in London and plans on leaving the land,but not without his share of the land's worth as he doesn't plan on ever coming back.

Jack is the older of the two and we see a man who's whole life work has been dedicated to the bog. Jimmy is younger and doesn't share the sense of  pride in a hard days work as we see him turn up late after Jack and Davy have done most of the hard work,and he isn't the most efficient of workers either. Jack almost takes Jimmy's leaving as an insult, this was presumably their parents land and Jack wants to keep their legacy alive by dedicating himself to the land they would have worked hard for. We see Jack despair, sitting alone at the bar while everybody celebrates

Jimmy's farewell and things take an even greater turn for the worse when Jimmy seeks legal counsel to claim his half of the land's value.
