Yes, Ireland may be reeling from the financial crash, but Dublin’s still a small place. The wife of a jailed criminal godfather is frantic: Gary, her only surviving son, is missing. But Bernie Cummins can’t trust the Guards to search for him. To them, Gary is scum - and good riddance to him too. She turns to her childhood friend for help - Tommy Malone’s Ma, Sheila. The women’s loyalties run deep and wide and long. With Bernie Cummins facing cancer, no way is Sheila going to let her pal down. In a meet with Bernie’s infamous husband Tony, Malone gets a coded signal that a deal can be done. A huge coup for the Guards? Maybe. But this collision of crime and loyalty will cost lives and see a good man torn down.
