Three young men forge a close friendship as they labour precariously high above the river, but one slip transforms their lives. A generation later, Robbie, a young landscaper, grappling with those who should be closest to him - his father, whose past is linked with the iconic bridge, and his girlfriend, Freya, who is left shattered after a vicious assault.
