Main program

The Pier / Gerard Hurley

Twenty years after a violent argument with his father forces him to leave Ireland for America, Jack receives a phone call telling him his father, Larry, is at death’s door. Jack returns to Ireland to find his father apparently healthy, but their relationship remains rather tense. It is only when Jack decides to head back to America that Larry confesses that he’s dying of cancer. As Jack decides to stay to take care of him, they begin to deal with the past and the cause of their original break – the death of Jack’s mother.
