In the 1970s, a young trans woman, Patrick "Kitten" Braden, comes of age by leaving her Irish town for London, in part to look for her mother and in part because her gender identity is beyond the town's understanding.
The title of the film and the novel it's based on is taken from the song "Breakfast on Pluto" by Don Partridge. The song is used as part of the soundtrack and Liam Cunningham quotes a few lines (including the title) from the lyrics.
You said it'd be a disaster, like you.
Patrick "Kitten" Braden: Worse, probably.
Charlie: But I love you, you fucking disaster.
The colour of the foil tops on the milk bottles changes colour between shots. They are silver when they're outside on the doorsteps with the robins picking at them and when the housekeeper picks them up to bring them in. When she puts them on the breakfast table inside in the next shot, they are golden.
