The story

Tommy is getting by - kind of: he is crashing in his uncle’s decrepit house in Dublin, dodging his estranged family, and plotting a parade of get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy Doc. Then one day he defends a destitute woman against a violent attack, and a fragile glimmer of hope appears.


I do know you.
I do.
I always knew you.
I always knew you.
— Tommy, THE NIGHT ALIVE
