Jack Irish: Blind Faith
HD / 6 x 60'
An Essential Media & Entertainment Production for ABC Australia
Jack Irish is a former criminal lawyer whose world imploded and he now spends his days as a part-time investigator, debt collector, apprentice cabinet maker, punter and sometime lover. An expert in finding those who don't want to be found- dead or alive, Jack helps out his mates while avoiding the past. That is until the past generally catches up with him.
Jack’s world revolves around the racetrack, the local pub and the artisan woodwork shop where he’s apprenticed himself to a master craftsman. But it’s his investigative work, often small jobs that snowball into larger, deadlier ones, that sets Jack on a path which he doggedly pursues. From bent cops to underground thugs, political leaders to investigative journalists, suddenly everyone seems to want a piece of Jack Irish.
When an Australian aid-worker is kidnapped by Muslim extremists it pits East against West, crescent against cross, life against death. From the island of Mindanao, in the Philippines to Melbourne, Jack Irish is caught in a global web of religious zealotry: right wing Christians and media-savvy jihadists.
