Synopsis

Belfast, 1971. A blood-drenched Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles. Catholic Nationalists and Protestant Loyalists are fighting each other in the streets, shooting, detonating car bombs. The two sides attract paramilitary troops, irregulars, and criminals. Gary is one of the recruits of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces patrolling the streets of the capital. During a clash, he finds himself behind enemy lines. The night quickly turns into a nightmare, and Gary is forced to face that special brand of terror and anguish generated by fratricidal hatred.
