This black comedy has just won Best Short Film at the Oscar Academy Awards! Ticket costs will go to the Inclusion Foundation to support young people with Down syndrome preparing for the workforce.
“The dynamic, hilarious, and heart-warming relationship between brothers confronts the audience with existential questions about what really matters to us and where we really call home.”Amano Miura from Dublin’s EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum
