Night Shift tells the story of a shy immigrant worker, who falls asleep on the last metro home and wakes up alone on the other side of the city. Afraid and alone, she navigates the eerily silent backdrop of a city asleep, until she meets a fast-food delivery cyclist taking a break. The two girls shoot the breeze over a coffee. Two strangers, on the margins of society.

Following the death of her mother, 11-year-old Fiadh moves from Dublin to the Connemara countryside to live with her aunt and uncle. Struggling with life in her new family, she is convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems. But realises that she is there to stay and must cope with her emotions.
