Chamber Music takes all the genre's most potent elements and makes them new and vital again: the corruption and social divide that bleeds from the pursuit of power a hallucinatory rendering of a city and the fatal gulf of empathy between the sexes.

Synopsis

It’s Manchester, 1998, and the funeral party for Henry Bane's father is interrupted by a woman from Bane’s past. Róisín is back in his life after an eight-year absence, which is inconvenient for Jan, his latest flame. Róisín has brought a wounded boyfriend with her—and a lot more trouble is following them up north. Meanwhile, a Yardie who goes by the name of "Hagfish" wants to take over the local ganglords’ territory with Mary, his terrifying weapon of choice. It’s Hagfish against Bane in a new turf war: a war that will claim lives and cement vendettas. It's a conflict steeped in half-forgotten history: a history that Bane and Róisín are forever tied to—and which ties them together.
