Central to Jay’s affections is his daughter Bonnie. Bonnie's traumatic birth has consequences for everyone involved, and his relationship with her mother Shauna breaks down. Young Jay is also taunted by his ailing mam and her religious assertions. Through a drug-fuelled haze, he finally sees the light just before the dawn of the new Millennium. Irishman Jay is a likeable character who had me championing his cause silently from the sidelines.
