Synopsis

A funny and moving story of family rivalries and loyalties. After the death of their mother, a group of siblings go missing through the night in Glasgow. As a violent storm tears through the city, the brothers and their sister are torn apart during a long, dark night full of mishaps and misunderstandings. Each must find their own way to come to terms with their grief through 24 hours of emotional and meteorological turbulence. As the city emerges from the storm, battered and bruised, so too must the family emerge and unite to mourn at their mother's funeral service.
