Life is short. Especially if you're a bee. Not long to make honey, prop up the human food chain, and to fall in love. Bumbled follows Pascal, an Irish honey bee, as he embarks on a hilarious and poignant journey to tell the world about the importance of bees, save the planet, and to find true happiness with his French girlfriend, the epic Marion ...,all while trying to avoid his balls exploding, his manhood falling off and certain death. Bumbled brings you on a one person, bee-twerking, Irish slow-dancing, sex dodging, odyssey - where "too late, often comes sooner than you think"..

A fable about tradition in a mad place, TRAD offers a hilarious tale of hundred-year-old Thomas and his even more improbably ancient Da. When Thomas reveals he fathered a son in a long-ago fling, the pair set off across the Irish countryside to find the unknown child, with nothing more than a hobble and limp to help them on their journey.
