Frank Marron is a 32-year-old catastrophe - a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who's convinced that the world owes him. Newly single and still living at home with his mother, Frank is a self-proclaimed musician with a tenuous hold on reality, who hasn't written a song or played a gig in years. His ex-girlfriend Áine has just found a new boyfriend, and Frank may be finding that a tad difficult. Luckily, Frank has a loyal best friend, Doofus, whose full-time job is clearing the debris left in Frank's wake. Set in an idyllic suburb of Dublin, the series is the hilarious story of a man's hapless search for respect, as he struggles to grow up and get his life together, and hopefully not burn everything to the ground in the process.
