Synopsis

After twenty years of no contact with his son, Larry McCarthy pretends to be on his death bed to get Jack to return to his native Ireland from America. Upon arrival Jack is furious to find his father alive and well and even more so when he then discovers he can’t leave . Soon, Father and son are forced into dealing with a painful history . At the core of their conflict is Larry’s denial about the death of his wife, Jacks mother. The story explores the difficult and painful, but often very hilarious ways they try to communicate. Forging a begrudging peace, the reality of life sets them when Larry discloses to Jack another truth that leads to a final reconciliation.
