An intricate and deliciously twisted tale of fractured fate, Jump traces the lives of several characters whose paths weave and intersect, jumping back and forth in time over the course of one wildly eventful New Year’s Eve in contemporary Northern Ireland.
Greta and Pearce meet distinctly non-cute on a night that will become a turning point in both their lives, as Greta, spoiled by her rich con-man father but bedeviled by a sense of purposelessness in life, is poised to jump off the bridge above Derry Harbour. Coming upon the distraught young woman – dressed as an angel and about to take flight from the bridge’s railing – Pearce, a young man in flight from his own devils, attempts to talk her down. What starts as a seeming struggle of wills evolves into a complex, wildly inventive and occasionally giddy mix of crime caper, star-crossed romance and fateful moral tale.
