The Big Bow Wow is a drama featuring an irreverent group of twenty-something neighbours who live in the same Dublin apartment building and drink in the same pub, The Big Bow Wow.  They work hard and play hard, have money, run businesses and turn the wheels of town.  Some are ambitious while others are just muddling through; all of their stories are funny, gripping and heartbreaking.
