A remake of the British version, Shameless tells the story of the dysfunctional Gallagher family. The father is a drunkard, the mother took her shoes off a long time ago, and Fiona, the eldest daughter, tries to take care of the family. The eldest son, Phillip (Lip), uses his talent in meditation to obtain sexual favors from a girl in the neighborhood. The middle man, Ian, is gay. The little girl, Debbie, steals money from her own collection for UNICEF. Carl, 10, is a budding sociopath and arsonist, and the youngest in the family, Liam, may be black, but no one knows why.
