On a farm in rural Northern Ireland, estranged brothers Turlough and Lorcan are forced to reunite following the untimely death of their mother. But when the pair discover an unfulfilled bucket list belonging to their late mum, their pained reunion takes an altogether different course. 

Join us for a screening*, talkback, and reception with writer/director duo Tom Berkeley and Ross White, star of An Irish Goodbye James Martin, and moderator Maedhbh McCullagh.

*Runtime: 23 minutes
