Brought together by their mother's death, four siblings of a Catholic working class family are propelled into a comical nightmare of absurd mishaps and bittersweet mayhem.

During a violent rainstorm, the three Flynn brothers and their wheelchair-bound sister gather on the eve of their dear mum's funeral to cope with their tragic loss. The siblings, weathering the storm in their own peculiar ways, retreat to four different worlds in their dark hometown of Glasgow where anything might, and does, happen.

In the tradition of Gillies MacKinnon's Small Faces, Scottish writer-director Peter Mullan's debut film is a powerful human drama about a dysfunctional family on the verge of self-destruction. Awarded Best Film at the 1998 Venice Film Festival, Orphans looks honestly at one family's grief and their unusual journey to redemption.
