Sure Look It, Fuck It is a spoken word odyssey through 24 hours in Dublin. It’s the story of Missy, back in town after years away trying to ‘make it’ as a returned emigrant. As she grapples with job interviews, inward blues and finding independence, she’s reminded that she used to fight for her buzz. It’s time to clear out her head and heart so she can start again. Its time for Missy to repeat that old Dublin mantra and just go “FUCK IT”.
