It’s the so-called idyllic 1950s and the dysfunctional Pazinski family has plenty going on in their cramped apartment above the town tavern. Rudy, the youngest of the bunch, has an insatiable curiosity and is questioning family values and the Catholic Church. Watch with hilarity as he goes up against Sister Clarissa and announces he’s shopping for a more "fun" religion in a comical look at family, religion and growing up.

In the rundown Dublin house where Sharky cares for his blind brother, old acquaintances and an ominous stranger gather for a Christmas Eve card game. As the liquor flows and the game heats up, Sharky realizes he may truly be playing for his soul. In the grand tradition of Irish storytelling, this eerie Christmas fable looks at how people face their demons, past and present. Contains mature language.
