Eoin is a businessman who can no longer pay the bills or the mortgage,Paul is a landlord with the banks breathing down his neck and Monika is a Polish cleaner whose minimum wage job is under threat. All three are struggling for survival and forced to make difficult choices. Through separate, but interlinked stories, their choices affect their own lives as well as others. Together the stories provide an intimate portrait of ordinary people trying to keep their heads above water when every choice has a consequence and some can be a step too far.
