Synopsis: Mick, a thirty-something man, has escaped his family environment by moving to London. After a long absence, he goes back to his hometown to see his dying brother – who has suffered years of alcohol abuse. In the last 48 hours of his brother’s life, Mick is forced to confront the demons he thought he had left behind, face the feelings he has towards his parents, and realises in the process that distance does little to heal old wounds. Three Sacks Full of Hats explores the capacity people have to face the truth about who they are.
