0 Reviews
The story of a young man's terrifying descent into a life of drugs, crime and prostitution, against the backdrop of the cultural and sexual revolution of the 60s and 70s. Drifting between the vibrant squats in Hampstead Heath, he soon sank into a life of drug addiction and petty-crime. Returning to Ireland, his life took a dramatic turn when he narrowly escaped death during a violent attack at the city's squalid Fatima Mansions estate. This would be the unlikely location of an epiphany that would transform Shay's life.
