Paula

This gripping three-part follows the fallout in a young chemistry teacher's life, after her one-night stand with a good-looking but dangerous ducker and diver.

Paula (Denise Gough) and James (Tom Hughes, Victoria) both live in Dublin, but their lives are worlds apart. Paula is a respected chemistry teacher, while James scratches out a living doing maintenance jobs and stealing from his mother. 

When Paula hears strange scuttling noises in her basement, she hires James to exterminate the rats and silence her fears. There is an instant, animalistic, spark of attraction and the two share a frenzied and fateful one-night stand. 

Paula is quickly pulled into a vicious game of cat and mouse. James seems to lurk on every street corner and behind every shadow – along with looming ghosts and silenced children, buried shame and harrowing secrets. As James’ grip strengthens, Paula’s ‘normal’ life shatters. She is forced to dig deep, and access the darkest depths of her soul, in a battle to survive.
