About a Donkey is about growing up & growing old, and finding laughter along the way. The film follows the Owens family: Ann & Tim, their 3 adult children, Cecilia, Burgh, and Annie (and her husband Paul), and matriarch Farrah. When Tim brings home a donkey in a mixture of wanting to rescue both it and himself, all of the characters' lives are shaken up and pushed forward.
About a Donkey is a charming quirky film about a family that feels both familiar and not like the same families we've seen in these kinds of films before. Largely a disconnected and fairly self-absorbed group, they are ultimately loving and care for one another deeply. About a Donkey is both that and about the connections between us.
