It features some of the Rebel County's best-known people, including Caitriona Twomey and her team at Cork Penny Dinners, Crosshaven's RNLI, the crew of Midleton Fire Station and the children of Rebel Wheelers.

Another special contributor to the film is Late Late Toy Show star, Adam King, who stole the hearts of the nation with his personality, his virtual hugs and his passion for space exploration.
