On the west coast of Ireland, Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson)is a small-town cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humour, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine-smuggling ring that has brought FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) to his door. Although he seems more interested in mocking and undermining Everett than in actively working to solve the case, Boyle finds that circumstances keep pulling him back into the thick of it. He soon realises that he needs to take matters into his own hands and the only person he can trust is Everett ... and so the scene is set for an explosive finale.
