After losing his warehouse job due to an incident of assault, Martin is left to wander the streets of Dublin spending his days drinking in the pub, placing bets on horses and getting lapdances. One night when drunk, he barks up the wrong tree when he approaches a group of rough youths. They humiliate him in his vulnerable state and leave him close to death. The next morning Martin, feeling so small, attempts to kill himself in the bath by pulling the toaster in to the water. The phone rings, and it's his daughter Laura. She wants to meet up, and Martin agrees. He cleans himself up and tries his best to impress. Upon meeting Laura, Martin struggles to relate to the little girl he held in his arms for the first time 15 years earlier. Her cold attitude towards him forces him to pathetically apologise for his mistakes in the past and try and convince her he's changed. Things go well and they arrange another date to meet. On his way to meet her the next day, he sees one of the youths that attacked him. He reacts, and very quickly, everything that he could work to have again, disappears in to the back of a police car.
