Carol Burnett meets Coronation Street meets Weekend at Bernie's
Frances and Loretta are homecare workers in Belfast. Their charge is an elderly man named Davy who has a passion for Frank Sinatra and betting on the ponies. When Davy passes on in the loo, leaving an unclaimed winning race ticket on his bureau, the temptation for the cash-strapped pair is too great. Frances and Loretta are thrown into a hilariously wild day-long ride of misadventure and lies as they desperately try to undo what they’ve done — only to see it all spiral out of control with typical Irish bitingly black comedy.
“It's all farcical and comical, full of spit and vinegar, but underneath it all is a long hard look at modern First World poverty and the things we do to just get by in daily life.” – Prince George Citizen
