A low key naturalistic drama which revolves around Dale, a pretty aimless 16 year old. His mother Leanne pressures him into a part time job with Barry, a local man who needs some gardening done. Barry quickly becomes the paternal figure Dale lacks. But it soon becomes obvious that Barry is not interested in turning Dale into a model citizen. When Barry starts luring Dale into drugs and sex with his wife Tracy, it is time for Dale to make a decision. Just how much Dirty Work does he really want?
