A privileged Dublin teen commits an impulsive act of violence that shakes his community to the core while plunging his life into a desperate tailspin. Richard Carlsen (Jack Reynor) was an 18-year-old rugby player with a bright future ahead of him. With graduation fast approaching, Richard and his friends attempt to make the most of their last summer together by stirring up mischief in the countryside. It's there that Richard meets Lara (Róisín Murphy), a pretty girl who quickly falls for the charismatic athlete. Trouble arises, however, when Lara's friendship with Richard's volatile teammate Conor (Sam Keeley) results in a tragic confrontation at a crowded house party. Consumed by shame as his friends and neighbors contend with the fallout of his reprehensible crime, Richard is devastated by the realization that even loving his father (Lars Mikkelsen) seems to have lost all respect for him.
