Colm, mid-40s has a comfortable life; a managerial job in Dublin’s docks, two teenage children and a kind, loyal wife in Claire. After the death of his father, a destructive figure, Colm’s emotional life cracks open, and his downward spiral continues when he is made redundant. Drinking heavily and unable to confide in Claire, Colm finds himself drawn to Jay, a 19 year old who dabbles in prostitution. Their sexual encounters and tentative friendship become Colm’s only solace – but this recklessness puts his family-life at risk.
