Brian Cox and Colm Meaney join a talented young cast in “The Last Right” — a poignant and heart-warming comedy drama that takes us on the road across Ireland as two brothers and a woman they’ve only just met come together to fulfill a stranger's last wish.

New York-based Daniel Murphy wakes on a flight home to Ireland for his Mum’s funeral to find elderly passenger, Padraig Murphy, has died in the next seat. To his surprise, the lonely Padraig had just listed him as his next-of-kin.

In a bid to persuade his autistic brother Louis to return to New York with him, Daniel agrees to drive Padraig’s remains all across Ireland — from Cork to Rathlin Island — to be buried with his brother. Hitching a ride in the passenger seat is the funeral home temp, Mary, on a desperate mission to correct a mistake.

Meanwhile, the police realize Daniel has no business driving off with Padraig’s body, and Daniel, Mary and Louis find themselves the focus of a nationwide manhunt.

As they cross the country and the border, sparks ignite between Mary and Daniel. But when a long-buried family secret endangers the fragile truce between the brothers, Mary finds herself caught in the crossfire.

With its unique sense of humor, this is a bittersweet comedy that will tug at your heartstrings.
