Shameless follows Frank Gallagher, an alcoholic, dysfunctional single father of six children living in a tough Chicago neighborhood. Fiona, the oldest, is a 20-something struggling to find her way in the world while serving as the de facto parent to her five siblings. Lip, the oldest brother, is a genius who would rather apply his sharp wit to petty crime than to academics. Ian, slightly younger, is gay in a neighborhood that isn't exactly gay-friendly, and in love with a closeted violent thug. Scrappy middle-schooler Debbie is fiercely devoted to her family, and Carl, only a year younger, has developed a frightening talent for pyrotechnics. Baby Liam is the youngest, and together they'll all go to any extreme to stay together and survive.
