IDLEWILD - Dublin 2018, a bitter gangland feud between two childhood friends has reached a deadly impasse, now only a sacrifice can end the bloodshed.

As they secretly meet to dig open the grave of their best friend, Donnie and The Rev reflect on their journey from the streets of Dublin to the heads of two powerful crime gangs. An exhilarating insight into the criminal world and how it does business, IDLEWILD - When two men play God...The Devil decides who wins.

**** - Show of The Week - Mail On Sunday

'Idlewild is utterly gripping in its calm, tight menace and its portrayal of the twisted moral codes that have led to certain areas of Dublin being almost no-go areas for law-abiding citizens' - The Sunday Independent.
