A Hand Full of Dirt

A Hand Full of Dirt

Archie Redman is a middle-aged man chasing a fading dream. In his obsession to hold on to his failing business—a small hotel—he has sacrificed everything. His marriage is broken, his debts have risen beyond his reach and he has a severely damaged relationship with his father.

Thousands of miles away, Archie’s son Jay faces worries of his own. Recently graduated from university, Jay is stuck in limbo, penniless in a cold, unforgiving city and unable to legally work until his father pays his school debts. Suddenly, an opportunity to resolve his problems and secure his future presents itself, but to take it he must commit the ultimate act of betrayal.
