September 2017 . . . As crowds gather on Waterford’s Quay to greet the county’s vanquished All-Ireland hurling team . . .
. . . the now middle-aged members of a teenage gang return to the city’s long abandoned Red Iron Bridge to remember their recently deceased friend.
The revelation of events surrounding the former hurling star’s death and the unexpected return of a long-exiled associate unravel the cords that bind the gang and expose the fragile nature of a thirty-year old friendship.
