Mags, a hot-headed pizza delivery cyclist who reckons herself to be entirely self-sufficient, is just about getting by during the property crisis in Dublin. When her bike is stolen and she loses her job, her eviction seems inevitable. With nowhere else to go, Mags must hunt down the thief who stole her bike and steal it right back. Mags must overcome her aversion to asking for help if she’s going to succeed, because this is no ordinary thief she’s hunting.

Part investigative thriller, part heist, and part magical-realist action comedy, Bicycle Thieves: Pumped Up is a wild ride from start to finish.
