Since he was a teenager, Proinsias O'Coinn has been trying to find a piece of art - a poem, a painting, anything - that could make him cry. He's come close - like when Jean Grey kills Professor X in X-Men 3 or when listening to Adele sing 'One and Only' - but it's like the sneeze that comes tantalisingly near but never happens. This is his quest to find out why. It's a personal, honest and moving reflection that looks inside as well as outside, to his own doubts and to the Ireland of his upbringing.
