Can four grumpy old Deaf men enjoy a weekend by the sea?

Comedy. Four grumpy old Deaf men travel to Blackpool for an annual Deaf event. But when they meet a group of young Deaf men, things start to go wrong. Can the old and young men find a way to get on? This film stars Deaf actors John Smith, Matt Kirby, Jonathan Reid and Ilan Dwek as the old men, with Matthew Gurney, Adam Bassett and Sean Richards as the young men. Rachel Shenton and Ali Briggs also appear in cameo appearances.
