Set in the 1970's, Breakfast on Pluto follows the exploits of Patrick Braden (Murphy), an. endearing, but deceptively tough young man. Abandoned as a baby in bis small Irish hometown and aware from a. very early age that he is different, Patrick survives this harsh environment with the aid of his; wit. and charm, plus a sweet refusal to let anyone and anything change who he is.. Jordan weaves a wonderfully surreal and magical tale to bring us this funny, moving and poignant rites of passage account of a young man enduring the trials and tribulations he faces with a smile and unwavering faith in the inherent goodness in us all.
