Gombean by Niamh McGrath

Directed by Seamus O'Rourke

GomBean takes place in a small town in Sligo, home of Grace O’Malley, a reluctant coffee slinger, still living off the highs of a tragically cut-short wrestling career.

That loss at the U18’s Community Games in ’94`still stings, but out of nowhere life throws Grace a shot at the money she desperately needs, as long as she wins one more tournament.

Easy pickings when your toughest competition is the local postman, right? But what happens when wrestling superstar (and sworn enemy) Ruby Stephens arrives back in town, with her sights locked on Grace?
