The Problem With People

Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Layer Cake) and Paul Reiser (Mad About You, Aliens) star as two estranged cousins, who having never met before, must try and put to rest a generation’s worth of family disputes – before they start another one!


Honouring his father’s last wish to reunite with the American side of his family, Irishman Ciáran calls his cousin, Barry, out of the blue with the offer for him to visit his homeland. Barry, keen to escape from the daily grind of his New York real estate firm, agrees to make the long trip over.


However, after an initially warm welcome, tensions soon boil over when it’s discovered that Barry has unexpectedly been left half the money in Ciáran’s father’s will. With the two men now torn apart by greed and jealousy, resulting in a feud that spirals into a series of pretty squabbles and disastrous hijinks, will they ever be able to give peace a chance again?
