Danny Callaghan is just out of jail and enjoying a quiet drink in a Dublin pub when two men walk in with guns.
On impulse, he intervenes to rescue the intended victim, petty criminal Walter Bennett, and finds himself dragged into Dublin's murky underworld.
As the police grope for answers and Danny struggles to protect those he loves, the rising tensions between the gangs threaten to erupt into a bloody showdown. Dark Times in the City portrays a society stumbling from prosperity to uncertainty - where cocaine and easy money have fuelled a ruthless gang culture and a man's impulsive decency may cost him the lives of those who matter most.
