    Life’s A Breeze is a feel good "recession comedy" about a family struggling to stay afloat and stay together through hard times in Ireland. Unemployed slacker Colm (Pat Shortt), his aging mother Nan (Fionnula Flanagan) and his niece Emma (Kelly Thornton) must overcome their many differences to lead their family in a race against time to find a lost fortune. Who said Life’s A Breeze? Lance Daly’s previous film Kisses screened at numerous A-list festivals including Toronto, Telluride, and London, and was picked up for international distribution by Focus Features (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lost In Translation, The Place Beyond The Pines). The film’s producer Macdara Kelleher commented: “We are delighted that Life's'A'Breeze will be the first major release for Wildcard Distribution. Life’s'A'Breeze is just a really great example of Irish film at its best that can hold its own alongside other great Irish films like The Commitments, The Snapper and The Guard.”

    On the fringes of Dublin two kids, Kylie and Dylan, live in a suburban housing estate devoid of life, colour and the prospect of escape. Kylie lives with five other siblings and her overworked mother. Next door, Dylan lives in the shadow of an alcoholic father and the memory of an elder brother who ran away from home two years earlier. After a violent altercation with his father, Dylan runs away from home and Kylie decides to run away with him. Together they make their way to the magical night time lights of inner city Dublin, to search for Dylan's brother in the hope of finding the possibility of a new life. Lance Daly's vision of Dublin, as seen through the innocent eyes of our protagonists, is a kaleidoscope of magic, wonder and mystery. But as the night wears on, and Dublin takes on a darker character, the two kids have to rely on the kindness of strangers, the advice of Bob Dylan and their trust in each other to survive the night.
