    Set in Glasgow in 1974 this play centres on a Scots Irish family, who are on the brink of owning their own home and joining the middle class after years of toil. However the sectarian strife, which is rife in the city, threatens to tear them apart. Rose, the Glasgow-born mother of the family, makes heroic efforts to hold them all together, but her son's involvement in paramilitary activity precipitates a dreadful tragedy, which ultimately brings about the destruction of the family unit.
