WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Howie Lee gets dragged into a bizarre feud of honour involving a scabies-infested mattress against The Rookie, which escalates into a spiral of personal tragedy. The Rookie, has problems of his own: massively in debt to a terrifying gangland figure for killing his prized Siamese fighting fish, he steels himself for a hideous revenge, until he is championed from a most unlikely quarter. Howie the Rookie is a nightmare vision of contemporary Dublin, where enemies and friends are interchangeable, and can even become an incarnation of the Mayan gods of death.

Running time: 1hr 20mins. Age 16+. Very strong language and sexual references.
