SYNOPSIS:  “After Rory has returned to Dublin to bury his mother, he decides that New York, with the flash job, fast bucks and high tech apartment is just not for him any more, and it’s time to be home again. But where is home, and who is Rory now? His old mates try to persuade him that he’s the same old loveable guy they said goodbye to when they finished University, but Rory knows different: he’s mean, moody, manipulative and thoroughly unlikeable. Out to screw everyone and everything in Dublin, Rory’s life spirals out of control and he loses his job, his flat and his girlfriend. But sometimes hitting rock bottom can be the only way to pull yourself up again, and after a spell as a chef in a low life kitchen, Rory is lucky enough to meet a guardian angel.”
