Still grieving the death of his father, a destructive figure in his life, Colm finds himself struggling to connect with his own family. A shake-up at work also starts threatening their financial future.
Desperate for comfort, he falls into the arms of a younger hustler named Jay (Dunkirk star Tom Glynn-Carney) and starts down and increasingly self-destructive path. As his sexual encounters with Jay become more frequent and intense, his recklessness starts to put his entire family life at risk.
