'If you peel the skin away from someone do you think people would recognise who they were? From their voice, or from the way their eyes moved, or from how their teeth fit together.'

Ailleen is about to turn sixteen. In the confines of a run-down fried chicken shop, she finds refuge.
Refuge from the pain left behind by the sudden disappearance of her eldest brother Ricki, and from the demons that haunt her alcoholic mother Rose.

When Ailleen’s Uncle Silco unexpectedly returns, her birthday party descends into shocking revelations and dangerous half-truths. Against the backdrop of boxed chicken, her coming of age is acutely shaped by the flawed adults and the secrets of those closest to her.
