This tale of drugs, love and family in Dublin City is a hilarious and heartbreaking triumph.
“Make sure that when you tell your story, you lived it like it was a novella version of a War And Peace-style work of Dublin fiction. Epic in small ways. Live it up now, because these be the days.”
So croons Jason (Emmet Kirwan), who swaggers around Dublin like he’s young and carefree, though neither is quite true anymore. The late nights of coke and yokes have turned into a neverending quest for an unattainable high. He’s missing work, letting down his friends – but sure it’s all good craic, right?
It’s not until Jason bumps into his estranged brother Daniel (Ian Lloyd Anderson) on the streets of Dublin that he realises it might not be, anymore. Daniel is slowly recovering from a heroin addiction, and as the two brothers address their issues over a series of meetings in Dublin city, Jason is forced to confront his sense of superiority about which drugs he uses to escape reality.
