“It is a whirlwind of madness, mayhem with a convoluted plot that actually works. It’s a great romp!”
— Filmireland.net”

First Feature
Q&A

Mike McMahon has reached rock bottom. The former King-of-the-Office, dethroned by ambitious upstart Jimmy Greene, finds himself elbowed out of a job. His wife Linda and kids are taking him for granted and father-in-law Frank is breathing down his neck in perpetual disappointment. When a troublesome tree crashes through their roof, Mike finds himself facing impending financial ruin. Encouragement from his camera-loving son, Pete, inspires Mike to enter a filmmaking competition, promising a “big cash prize” and the chance to recapture past glory. Massive ego combined with a mind-boggling lack of talent soon sees Mike on the wrong sides of both the law and his loved ones. The combined hazards of shootouts, car chases and local Kerry characters launch a descent into chaos with Mike’s very life facing the cutting-room floor!
