Róise & Frank tells the story of the
recently widowed Róise (Bríd
Ní Neachtain) who in a small Irish
seaside town is struggling in the aftermath of her husband Frank’s passing. Grief-stricken and lonely, Róise

when a stray dog starts to follow her every move, a rejuvenated Róise starts
to believe in the reincarnation of her husband and the power of enduring life
in its next, hopeful steps.

widow and finding hope in the darkest of places and is winning audience’s
hearts everywhere it goes.

Conghail of Macalla Teoranta. The film was funded by Screen Ireland, TG4
