When her gran’s health starts to fail, the women of the household travel through the older woman’s past, addressing family history and memories. Voicecast includes Brendan Gleeson, Sharon Horgan, Rosaleen Linehan, Charlene McKenna, and Mia O’Connor as Mary. 

There will be an IFI Family screening on Sunday 30th at 11.00, followed by a young viewers Q&A! Roddy Doyle will be on hand to answer questions from young audience members. Join us for what is sure to be a fun event with this brand new animation!
