Adam and Paul

A stylized, downbeat comedy about two Dublin heroin addicts, Adam and Paul. Adam is the taller and slightly smarter of the two while Paul is his sidekick. Since they were small boys, Adam and Paul have withered into two hopeless, desperate Dublin junkies, tied together by habit and necessity. The film follows the pair through a single day, which, like every other, is entirely devoted to the business of scrounging and robbing money for drugs.
