Charlie, a middle-aged writer, goes back to Ireland for his father’s funeral, where he finds himself face-to-face with his father’s ghost --  an entirely benevolent and happy ghost, who never met a man he didn’t like.  As Charlie struggles to come to terms with his well-meaning but ineffectual “da” (Irish for dad), he is beset with memories of his mother, his childhood friend, his first employer, the first girl he ever lusted for and even his former (17 year old) self.   Audiences everywhere have found “Da” to be a hilarious and heart-warming look at the joys -- and occasional sorrows -- of family life.
