RÚBAÍ

Drama, Female Director(s), Comedy
The First Holy Communion is fast approaching and eight-year-old Rúbaí flatly refuses to be a part of it. She’s an atheist and proud of it, but faces emotional blackmail, religious and philosophical debate, and overt intolerance in today’s supposedly diverse and modern Ireland.

Screening in Shorts Program: Moral Fibers
