Stevie Russell explores issues of conscience and moral courage in his video for Kodaline's Honest, as a politician signs an official document against his better judgement.

After introducing memorable everyman heroes in his earlier Kodaline videos - most memorably for All I Want - here is a more ambiguous character. So in this Dublin-set modern day version of High Noon, will the troubled politico ultimately stand up against the bad guys? You better believe it.
