Burning Wishes
20, Jan 2015 - 08:58

Cian McGarrigle's latest venture 'Burning Wishes' is on screen now - the first in this year's RTE Storyland productions.

Ne'er-do-well brothers Seamus and Martin Geraghty promise to honour their friend Paudie's deathbed request and scatter his ashes at their favourite childhood spot. After letting him down in the past this is one promise to Paudie that Seamus is determined to keep even when Paudie winds up buried instead of being cremated. Burning Wishes is a black comedy about death, friendship and good ol' fashioned grave-robbing.

Watch it online on RTE's Storyland.
