Synopsis

A sexy romantic drama in which, at the outset, the characters are leading their own lives in very different worlds, though each is beset by niggling discontentment. Michelle (Renée Weldon: IFTA Best Actress) is a fast-rising young Dublin lawyer with a smart apartment overlooking the Liffey, but she's dissatisfied with her relationship with a doctor (Declan Conlon). Conor (Aidan Gillen) is lonely and unattached, dutifully running the traditional Dublin pub owned by his hard-drinking father (Eamon Morrissey). Late one night, Michelle bursts into the bar and orders a triple vodka. The consequences are explored and developed with an honesty and credibility as these disparate characters tentatively draw closer to each other; there is a strong sexual attraction and they become lovers. But there are complications along the way and the path to love can be rocky. What's the trouble with sex? You'll see.
