Mud Queen

A remote farmhouse in rural north country Dublin, Ireland. The early 1990’s. Sensitive, artistic Ryan, his 6-year-old sister Katie, and his larger-than-life mother, Sue, are preparing to throw a wild and glamorous birthday party for Ryan’s 12th birthday. But is Mum’s behaviour just a normal part of the festivities? Or a sign of trouble to come? As the night wears on, Ryan must try to keep everything under control – and keep reality and the outside world at bay. Even for just one more night. A colourful, energetic film about the messiness of love and the complicated relationships between sons and mothers.
