“First we had one, then another, then another, and now there's a pack of them and they're all barking mad. And they're not bright, they're not clever, that's a myth. I'll tell you what they are. Havoc.”
The Herming family have moved to rural Northern Ireland – also known as the middle of nowhere. The Dad makes stuff in his shed, the Mam pops pills in her armchair, and Johnny the son avoids them both as much as possible. So far, so normal. But when Johnny comes home from university, everything has gone a little strange. For starters, the family dogs have turned invisible and Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt (and local resident) has arrived unannounced. While Johnny wrestles with all that is seen and unseen, an ongoing conflict with a nearby farmer will have untold repercussions for his parents… Descend into madness, and ascend unto greatness, as the savage dogs of war tear this family apart.
