I’d like to thank you for posting my first short film Stay. The one with the two dogs and no budget.  This is the follow up. It carries far deeper meaning and examines the culture that we live in. Again it was made with no budget and just a passion to share a vision. It’s a short film that examines our drinking culture and how this culture is perceived by the rest of the world. What makes us ‘Irish’ and what keeps us Irish.

To which some might say.
