Matt is having a bad year. First, he loses his job. Then his wife kicks him out of their home and gets a barring order, forcing him to kip on his best friend’s couch. Things couldn’t get worse, could they? Then poor Matt gets drunk, forgets about the barring order, goes home, and is promptly arrested, which introduces Matt to a totally different society—prison. Here, all the rules are different. It is a whole new world and one that most of us will never know. We track Matt’s progress on his journey into the unknown and how he copes with everything that gets thrown at him. Read on to get a unique insight into this underbelly of Dublin life.
