:: PLOT

Dave and Locky are two old-timers who once earned their living as part of a theatrical company. Nowadays, by holding "seances" at their self-styled Temple of Truth (a room above a Dublin pub), they earn money by pretending to communicate with the dead. It's a harmless scam, but one that gets increasingly complicated when a local gangster dies and his family attempts to communicate with him. For "increasingly complicated" read "downright dangerous" when the dead gangster actually makes contact.

:: BIOGRAPHY

David Blair began his career with the BBC in Glasgow. The opportunity duly arrived with a TV project he'd long developed with the writer Donna Franceschild "Takin'Over The Asylum" which anjoyed critical acclaim, winning a host of awards. This was to be the first of three collaborations with the writer, the others being A Mug's Game and Donovan Quick, which again wooed the critics and was selected for the Chicago, Cairo, Cork and Birmingham film festivals.
These projests were punctuated with a variety of others: The Lake and a version of Anna Karenina for Channel 4. Latterly David has been engaged on a couple of feature films, Tabloid and Mystics.
