One bright summer's morning in 2003 a young woman, Lucy, recently out of jail, sets out on a journey around Dublin, trying to make sense of her troubled life. She tells of the rise and fall, over three generations, of her family, whose businesses were clairvoyance and street-trading, and she recalls the twists and turns that led her into addiction, madness and jail. In particular, she relives her relationship with a charismatic and dangerous young gangster, Nayler, who still haunts her and to whom she addresses her story. Lucy's journey turns into a pilgrimage back to a haunted place and to the worst life of her night. But it may be a pilgrimage that saves her as she finally faces down the ghosts of her past.
