    • "8.5 Hours" is an intense, controversial drama set in modern Ireland about one day in the lives of four characters who work together in a small software company. During one Monday in Dublin, each character experiences a devastating series of events which unfold throughout their working day of 9.00 to 5.30, the 8.5 hours of the title. The four stories deal with themes of ambition, sex and betrayal in a time of economic uncertainty. These parallel narratives intertwine and criss-cross, building to a series of thought-provoking and haunting climaxes.
