With the previous film ending on a cliffhanger as Cody is shot. Shot Down takes up the story some months later and we do not immediately know the fate of Cody.
Jack Taylor feels even more beaten down as to Cody's fate and has left Galway for Dublin finding work wherever he can. On a dark night he finds a young girl feeling from the woods covered in blood.
This leads to an investigation within the Irish traveller community, the girl found the body of her mother murdered but cannot recall the events. The travellers are distrustful of Jack as well as each other, the police seem to care little of the gypsies and Jack might have committed a grave mistake by trusting the wrong person.
The story felt a little uneasy to me as it did not follow on from the dramatic finale of the previous episode. I also thought the story here was a little humdrum. The gypsies were at loggerheads with a splintered branch of the family but I guess rather easily who the main suspect might be.
