It’s Christmas Eve, 2006, and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his ageing brother, who’s recently gone blind.
Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky are holed up at the house too, hoping to play cards. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised from a friendly card game to a soul-taking, all-in showdown.
