The film was shot in a speedy, mobile style around Sheriff Street, Dublin.
The film has received strongly positive reviews. The Irish Times stated "Inner-city Dublin has often been the subject of Irish films, but few previous releases have got so close to the exhaust fumes, car alarms and fag ash."  Entertainment.ie called it "a rough-and-ready drama that's a cross between Mean Streets and La Haine."
