Plot Summary: Based on award-winning Irish playwright Joseph O'Connor's celebrated stage drama, the dark comedy explores the complex dynamics of love, life and the loss of a family member with delightfully scathing humor and surprising plot twists. Amidst a haze of cigarette smoke, uneaten food and enough whiskey to sink a ship, the family of Enda Doyle (Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell) gathers in Dublin for their patriarch's eventful wake. A university librarian, poet and rascal, Enda’s legacy includes a trail of unresolved issues, a dysfunctional family, and a disturbing mystery.
