Der im Dubliner Hafenmanagement tätige Familienvater Colm wird durch den Tod seines alkoholkranken und gewalttätigen Vaters aus der Bahn geworfen. Trost findet er nur in der geheim gehaltenen sexuellen Beziehung zum kleinkriminellen, geldfixierten Stricher Jay. Während dieses Verhältnis einerseits zu Selbstfindung und Auseinandersetzung mit seelischen Wunden beiträgt, gefährdet es andererseits Colms Familienleben. Schonungslos offenes Drama um Identitätssuche mit zwei starken Hauptdarstellern. (Oliver Stangl)

Colm is in his mid-forties, married, with two teenage children. Still grieving the death of his father, a destructive figure in his life, Colm struggles with his relationship to his own son, whilst at work a recent takeover threatens his job. Unable to share his vulnerability with his wife, Colm’s world is falling apart around him. In the midst of this crisis, Colm solicits sex from a young man called Jay. This encounter and his growing infatuation has a deep effect on Colm. He finds a comfort in Jay that no one else can provide. (Venice International Film Festival)
