A year has passed since Darren (ROBERT SHEEHAN) was shot as he tried to walk away from gangland. Now tortured by nightmares he is forced to turn to crime kingpin John Boy Power (AIDAN GILLEN) for help once more. John Boy's own plans to get out of the business and retire to Spain are wrecked when two consignments of drugs are seized by the cops, sparking all-out war with a rival gang. Haunted by the death of his brother and out of control on the cocaine that he sells, John-Boy spirals into violence and madness – and as the gang war escalates, Darren's debt is called in. But is he really ready to take a human life?
