GETTIN’ SQUARE

Completed

Barry Wirth has just got out of prison, having been charged with a crime he did not commit. Barry has his suspicions as to who set him up, but is determined to stay out of trouble. Gettin’ Square follows Barry’s life after prison as he ties to stay on the straight and narrow and get square. But like his mate Johnny ‘Spit’ Spiteri and reformed gangster turned restaurateur Dabba, he finds out the hard way that there are old scores and a few new ones that’ll make getting square a lot harder than he thought.
