Transition Year work experience. Exciting and enthralling for some, daunting and nerve-wrecking for others. Ciara, Eoin and Jeaic have the world at their feet, with grand visions of what their futures will hold: the thrill of the big stage, the glamour of hairdressing, or the hustle and bustle of New York City. These three friends commence on different paths in a hope to find out what direction life will take them. But one thing is for sure: it’s an experience they won’t forget.
