Róise, a woman still in mourning following the death of her husband Frank, is initially annoyed when a mysterious dog shows up at her door. But a series of eerie coincidences soon has Róise convinced that the dog is Frank, reincarnated. As this new canine companion helps Róise overcome her grief, ‘Frank the dog’ also proves an unlikely new friend for shy, hurling-loving local boy Maidhchi. But as Frank wins over the town, Róise’s neighbour Donncha has some sinister plans for the doggo…

Set in the scenic Ring Gaeltacht area in Co Waterford, Róise & Frank is a charming Irish-language film for the whole family: a comedy-drama that will elicit smiles, tears and plenty of laughs.
