    19+ Event

    A down-on-their-luck Irish family decides to remodel their ornery mother’s house while she’s out. Upon her return, Nan (Fionnuala Flanagan,) reveals that her old mattress they had thrown out was no ordinary mattress – it contained all her life savings.

    The family begins the search for nearly a million Euros, now floating around Dublin’s trash. Adding insult to injury, Nan’s youngest son (Pat Shortt), decides to ask for the public’s help on the radio, bringing the entire country in on the hunt. Even though Lance Daly's newest comedy is sarcastic and simultaneously ironic, Life's a Breeze maintains a breezy tone, poised with flashes of genuinely charming relationships.
