Full film details

The infamous and unruly Mannion family runs the rural Ireland town of Dromord. They’re led by patriarch Daddy (Pat Shortt), who’s married to the beautiful Sarah (Charlie Murphy).

But Sarah’s relationship with her husband is far from conventional. While she enjoys his money, she’s more than 20 years his junior and has always harboured feelings for his son, and her one-time lover, Doggy (Peter Coonan).

The Mannions are a family of rogues, and Sarah might be better enjoying the life she has and rather than getting tangled up in the family politics and causing drama between the men.

Despite this, she has a fling with Daddy’s youngest son (Moe Dunford). As the wandering wife moves swiftly between the men, she reopens old wounds and the long-time peace within the family looks set to shatter, with a bloody ending likely.

Directed by Ian Fitzgibbon (Death of a Superhero, Moone Boy), this dramatic and dark Irish comedy stars Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Happy Valley, The Foreigner), Peter Coonan (Love/Hate, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Penance), Moe Dunford (Metal Heart, Vikings) and Pat Shortt (Garage, Animals, Calvary).
