Set against the backdrop of the Celtic Tiger economy Headrush is a quirky, contemporary, black caper/crime comedy about two young guys, Charlie and T-Bag, who hope to solve all their problems by working for a notorious Underworld Criminal, The Uncle.
Down on his luck Charlie has been kicked off the dole, had his electricity cut off, and been dumped by his girlfriend Vicky. Despite claiming to be an expert on women, his best friend T-Bag has never had a girlfriend and the boys are convinced only money will change their depressing situation.
Headrush is a story about frustration, fear, and friendship. Charlie is a lost soul in a society riddled with corruption, political distrust and a preoccupation with making money. Trying to cope with problems he brings on himself, he seems on an inevitable slide that takes him deeper and deeper into a world with fatal consequences. It's the fight of his life. It's a Headrush.
