Jonathan adds: ‘We’re blessed with an amazing cast with Ian McElhinney (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘The Fall’) taking the lead role being joined by Martin McCann (‘71’, ‘Whole Lotta Sole’) and Maggie Cronin (‘The Shore’, ‘Whole Lotta Sole’).’

Christopher Myers and Brian J Falconer produce the film for Out of Orbit, a Northern Irish production company who are currently enjoying festival success with titles ‘Boogaloo & Graham’ and ‘Land is God’. Kevin Treacy joins the team as Director of Photography.

The film has received production funding from Northern Ireland Screen and receiving support from Panavision.
