Synopsis:
Peter Mullan, paints a provocative picture of family life in his critically acclaimed debut as writer and director. The evening before their mother's funeral, the Flynn brothers and their disabled sister meet for a private farewell ceremony. However, the party gets highly over-emotional and ends in violence at a local pub. But this shocking event is just the first of a series of frightening, distressing and funny incidents that face the Flynns over one stormy Glasgow night. It's a compelling story of the similarities that bind a family together and the differences that threaten to tear them apart, where violence is explored as an antidote to grief and hilarity a refuge for compassion.
