A six part mockumentary series. The show follows the trials and tribulations of six ordinary Dubliners, as they navigate recession Ireland.

The show addresses themes like unemployment, changing sexual politics, ethnic and class identity and social isolation. Each episode focused on one individual, a fictionalised representative of a real contemporary Dublin community. Like Joyce’s famous short story collection, these naturalistic depictions of contemporary Dublin life attempt to capture the citizens of Dublin at a time of radical change. The show was recorded entirely on location, in a subtly comedic, low-key, fly on the wall style. The characters stories subtly intertwine, and gradually a picture emerges of a contemporary Dublin whose hopeful veneer hides a profound sense of alienation. The series dealt with characters from different ethnic and social groups, and varied income brackets; depicting the trials and tribulations of life in contemporary Ireland, emotionally as well as financially.
