Young Muslim Raghdan Aziz (Nikesh Patel) struggles to deal with cultural and generational chaos after his domineering father (Art Malik), in a bid to get his son back into his life, takes over a rundown abattoir in the West of Ireland, making it Halal. Between his angry girlfriend, stoner best pals and his belligerent father, his easy-going life in coastal Sligo takes a turn for the worst. This charming whimsical culture-clash comedy is inspired by true events as it details Ireland’s first Halal meat factory, by a series of fine lead performances.
