Little Crackers. Dad (Tommy Tiernan).


2010s. Things are pretty strained in the Tiernan household. Nigel's mother and father have divorced and, after speaking to a therapist, his dad, Tommy, has been advised to unleash his inner canine and bark his stresses out.

He's not the only member of the family needing a bit of relief either, what with Tommy's beloved pet pooch suffering from constipation. The timing couldn't be worse and, following a mix-up involving mislaid medicine, this touching father/son/dog tale flags up the importance of letting go.


Produced by Baby Cow.
