The drama is set in democratic Ireland in the late 1970s. Charlie Haughey is the Taoiseach of Ireland, and his loyal servant, P.J Mara. The main focus of the drama is on Haughey and his circle, and the drama largely remains true to life while capturing the excitement and menace that was in the air.
