In this adaptation of local Irish lore, the ghost of a legless 18th century serial killer gains redemption when he falls in love with a modern day sex worker. Together they infiltrate and haunt the mega-brothel down the road, empowering workers to seize the means of production - their own bodies. With 1790s Irish ballads and 1990s dancehall.
