FAITHLESS

Faithless is a captivating, timely and refreshingly funny series. It takes a comedic, tantalisingly honest and insightful look at an emerging Ireland, with its multi-cultural facets and challenges.

This sharp-witted tale tells the story of three young sisters living in Dublin and their Irish/ Egyptian dad who, after a tragic incident, is raising them alone. That is until his irresponsible younger brother moves in to ‘help’ and never leaves.

Meet the Amin family—the new fighting Irish. Faithless takes a close look at the ways the family cope with the vacuum left behind and realise that, regardless of age or seniority, everyone has to grow up fast.

Using black comedy, it shines a light on some uncomfortable truths about gender roles, grief, identity, acceptance, faith and happiness.
