Storyline

James Allen "Laurence O'Fuarain" is a successful, controlling, thirty-something banker living alone and working in Dublin city at the tail-end of the recession. When a family tragedy occurs at the hands of his employer he decides to take action which forces him to face a terrible childhood secret. Meanwhile, his mysterious co-worker Alison "IFTA - nominated - Sarah Carroll" has her own agenda, which puts her on a collision course with James, triggering a dark spiral of deceit, revenge, and murder. Director Alan Mulligan's first feature is a deliberate and slow-paced look at modern day greed and desire, and society's ever-growing need for control. Written by Alan Mulligan

I felt compelled to review this. The marketing team behind this are very clever. Walked into a cinema of twenty to thirty people. I got a refund half way through the film. Abysmal in every aspect.

Made by an ex banker who should have stuck to being a banker. I support Irish film but I am furious I wasted my time.
