Set in contemporary Dublin, a petty crook Michael (Cillian Murphy), his ailing father Jim (Jim Broadbent) and a pretty neighbour, Brenda (Jodie Whittaker) are three unlikely fugitives on the run from gangster supremo, Perrier (Brendan Gleeson), the biggest, nastiest gangster in the whole of Dublin who is desperate to retain his pride and cash after the accidental murder of one of his loyal gang.
With only 24 hours to escape certain death, the trio must beat the clock, stay awake, and above all, pay Perrier’s bounty.
