The crew filmed at Mary Street, Lower Abbey Street and near Yummy Cafe back at the beginning of February.

The film itself is about two men — a veteran garda and a young man on the wrong track in life — on parallel journeys to make things right in their respective worlds.

The free screening takes place at 7pm and Patrick McDonnell says it is a thank you to businesses and people in Tralee for financing and help during the filming.

Entry is on a first come, first serve basis and is over 16s. There will also be a Q&A session after the film. For more information please contact
