A scream from the streets. A plea to be seen as human.

Embodying Irish humor and tenacity, Myra chronicles her struggle with alcoholism and the generational and political traumas that fuel it. She introduces a cast of colorful characters from her working-class Dublin community, whose own challenges fill in the larger picture of a battered but resilient Irish society.   

"''I've told yeh, daughter, alcoholism is part of us Hennessys. It stalks us. Pulls us down. The Beast me own Da called it. An' his Da before. An' y'can take it from me... when The Beast comes for a Hennessy, there's no escape."
