An intense explosive thriller set in 1980s Northern Ireland. Five years after the celebrated 1981 hunger strikes and in the midst of the paranoia surrounding informers in the Irish Republican movement, a family faces a turning point.
Some "operations" have been compromised and a beloved farm hand is suspected of being an informer. A sinister IRA investigator is brought in to sniff out the traitor, and his inquiries begin to gnaw away the edges of familial loyalty. A heart stopping, chilling theatrical experience.
