A new darkly comic tale set in Ireland’s border country. The still smouldering embers of past love are rekindled, old scores are settled, and revenge is exacted swiftly, brutally and with a certain flair!

Bobby Courtney returns to his home town to bury his Da. It’s been a few years since his last visit and he’s isn’t planning on hanging around, but that’s before he bumps into Lily, an old flame. He discovers that she is now married to Johnny Murtagh, a former friend of his. In the past, this ‘friend’ had informed the law about Bobby’s involvement in diesel laundering. Bobby decides to stay in town and get reacquainted with Lily – and Johnny. He gets a job at the local meat factory and teams up with ‘Silk Cut’ Sonny and Big Phil. Very soon shady deals are uncovered, old wounds are opened and fresh ones inflicted. As in Hollywood’s Old West, individuals survive on their wits and talents. Well, when the going gets tough, what’s left for a man and his comapdres to do but saddle up and get even? Looks like it’s time for a showdown!
