When the caring role is reversed – 15 year old Lisa must hold everything together otherwise she could lose her mum and her brother
‘Who Cares’ is a short drama about two children who must care for their mother and themselves. Set in a working class community it looks at the stress and survival instincts of two young people who must cope with whatever is thrown at them.
Shot on location in St. Johns Park and starring Linda Gough, Jim Meagher, Mickey Power, Abi McCormick and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Directed by Liam Meagher, filmed by John Loftus with script by Ollie Breslin: the film is produced by Éadaoin Walsh and funded through support from the Screenwriter and Producer Grant from Waterford City and County Council.
The producers aim is that ‘Who Cares’ (working title) could become a mini-series which follows the story of the two main characters LISA aged 15 and LITTLE JIMMY aged 10 as they try and stay out of the reach of Social Services.
Screening will be followed by Q and A with Director and Writer.
