“I desired to go beyond. I wanted to experience the exaggerated feeling of nothingness…”
Left disillusioned and angry in the wake of recovering from a manic episode, Michael attempts to find solace in self-destruction and rebellion against a superficial world. As death, betrayal and hedonism cause Michael’s mental state to unravel again, we gain a jarring insight into the mentally ill, the rape victims and the survivors of violence, unnoticed by our society and left to renew the ‘Binge.’
This gritty tale of drugs, depression and disillusion perfectly encapsulates Ireland’s new lost generation. At once heart-wrenchingly beautiful, sparklingly witty and gaggingly gory, this poignant critique on society will leave you weeping, laughing and unnerved as it resonates with the darkest parts of your heart.
