Synopsis
Four grown up children come together the night before the funeral of their mother in Glasgow. While Thomas sings a tribute in the local pub, a fight breaks out and Michael is stabbed. John wants to avenge his brother, while Thomas goes to chapel with his sister Sheila for an all-night vigil. Even here, though, is not safe, as a storm tears the roof from the church. Each sibling must find their own way to come to terms with their grief during a turbulent long, dark night of mishaps and misunderstandings. After an emotional and traumatic night, the siblings eventually reunite in grief.
