Staring Aaron Monaghan, Aisling O’Mara and Kieran Roche


A bible, black comedy about a prodigal son returning to his hometown to seek salvation for his sins.

Jimmy, a nihilist, carries a black leather doctor’s bag around containing the rope he plans to hang himself with. Filled with guilt and shame he returns to his hometown in the cold austere beauty of West Cavan. As soon as Jimmy visits, his ailing father breathes his last. Thunder rumbles and rain starts to pour. But there is a condition in the will…his father cannot be buried on a wet day. Stuck in this ‘Groundhog Day-like’ purgatory, days roll into weeks as Jimmy seeks redemption. Through love he finds it in the most sacrificial and outlandish manner possible.
