Like many a twenty-something in recessionary Ireland, 29 year-old Sligo man, Joe Gallagher, is at a crossroads. Stripped of a job, tied to a house in mortgage arrears, out of luck in love and off the drink, Joe is tackling the issues head on. A body-builder with a financial background, he suddenly saw bare opportunity and grabbed it through a 'back to work scheme' as a stripper: birthday, hen parties, nightclubs and dancing. Stripped documents a week in Joe's Sligo life as he grapples with the weight of a new business that has a barbell-uplifting twist. Winner of the Doc on the Box Competition.
