Deep in the alien landscape of East Belfast during one of the worst years of the Northern Ireland Troubles, Gary Hook, a young British squaddie fresh from basic training, is accidentally abandoned by his unit in the confusion of a terrifying riot. Wounded, lost and unable to distinguish friend from foe, Gary (Jack O’Connell) finds himself trapped in a tightening web of violence and deception. In visceral close-up he is hunted, protected and betrayed in a situation he cannot understand. In one of the most compelling British thrillers for years, Jack O’Connell delivers an exceptionally powerful performance as we are dragged through the terror and cynicism of Belfast in 1971.
