Richard Carlson is a charming, golden-boy athlete seeing out the end of his summer holidays after his final year at school in South Dublin. He is ready to head out to university and a glittering career when he incurs the wrath of his girlfriend Lara’s ex, Conor and a single, uncharacteristic act of love, pride and jealousy changes everything. Featuring extraordinary breakthrough performances, What Richard Did is a quietly devastating, award-winning study of honesty, mortality and responsibility.

Adapted from Kevin Power’s novel Bad Day in Blackrock and written by award-winning screenwriter Malcolm Campbell (Skins, Shameless).
