Tony O'Neill is not having a good day. He is unemployed and broke, with a wife and child to support. Even worse, he's living with his snobbish mother-in-law. They don't get along.
Bridie Feeney is mad. She's just had a fight with her son-in-law and daughter. Bitter words have been spoken. But she is not going to apologize...

Dave Cummins needs a fix ... bad. It's the worst day of his life. He knows he's going to do something he swore he'd never do.

Sarah Collins is looking forward to a day in town. She’s been planning for ages ... then the unthinkable happens.

It's a day none of them will ever forget. But for two, it's the day they get a second chance.
