Their father having recently died, three estranged Irish siblings come together under the same roof for the first time in years in director Tamar Simon Hoffs' feature adaptation of an original stage by Joseph O'Connor. As the wake ends and day fades to night, old tensions begin to emerge as revelations about child abuse, sibling rivalries, and suspected infidelities gradually come to light. Malcolm McDowell, Olivia Tracey, and Max Beesley star.
