She begins by interviewing drug users but quickly finds her way to the major dealers and suppliers for Dublin's drug trade. As she does so, her life and the lives of her family members are increasingly threatened. Despite that, she forges ahead with her story. Even when she is badly beaten up by a drug lord, she persists in her efforts to expose the criminal underworld that she believes is ruining the lives of thousands of Dubliners. Will Veronica continue to investigate these shadowy figures even if it means losing her life?
