The situation is brought abruptly back into focus by the return of
ex-girlfriend Jean: high maintenance and anti-everything, except making
Tommy miserable. When, during one of their frequent 'domestics' he confronts
a dilemma far greater than what party to go to.
What follows is a story of compromise and corruption as Tommy realises his
lies are not the only ones and that once you step into darkness, it becomes
difficult to see where you're going.

Funding: The film is one of the first features to be supported by the Irish
Film Board's new digital initiative, which allows for funding of up to 60% from the Board to projects with a maximum budget of Euros 1m. According to McLoughlin, the Film Board are providing 54% of the total budget, with the remainder made up of S481/Irish tax funding, sales advances from RTE and Xtravision (in a deal negotiated by the Film Board), and equity funding of 10%. Bastow Charleton provided S481 funding through their clients and customers, once Distinguished Features had secured the S481 certificate with the Department. Distinguished Features have appointed an international sales
agent for the film.
