Des Bishop's rugged chin juts into Irish screens for this one-off documentary that tells the deeply personal tale of his father, Mike, who has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Inspired by his father's illness, the impact it has had on the Bishop family and their sense of humour in dealing with it, this documentary follows Des as he develops his latest internationally-acclaimed stand up show My Dad Was Nearly James Bond. The show tells his father's story - that of an actor and model who gave up the glamour for a steady job in a department store when his three sons were born. Here, Bishop champions the real heroics of fatherhood in his own way by challenging common regrets and the ridiculous ideals of manhood that many men try to live up to.
