It's Manchester, 1998, and the funeral party for Henry Bane's father is interrupted by a woman from Bane's past.
Roisin is back in his life after an eight-year absence, inconvenient for Jan, his latest flame.
Roisin has brought a wounded boyfriend with her - and a lot more trouble is following them up north.
Meanwhile, a Yardie who goes by the name of 'Hagfish' wants to take over the local ganglords' territory with Mary, his terrifying weapon of choice.
It's Hagfish against Bane in a new turf war: a war that will claim lives and cement vendettas.
It's a conflict steeped in half-forgotten history: a history that Bane and Roisin are forever tied to - and which ties them together.
