Nelson “Nelly” Rowe (James) is a ducker and a diver, a charmer, a chancer, a fighter and a liar. He ‘likes a drink’, spending most of his time in the local pub, and he loves whoever he’s sleeping with, even if it’s not his current girlfriend. He’s also a man who should know better at his age, but couldn’t care less...that is until his whole world comes crashing down around him.
When Nelly’s 13-year-old daughter, who he barely knows goes missing, her mother Claire (Jones), is convinced of his guilt. Before he knows it he’s been arrested and charged with kidnapping.
Desperate to clear his name Nelly, looks to his community for help. Hell-bent on finding the perpetrator and saving his daughter, he will stop at nothing in his life-changing quest for the truth.
