Movie Info

This chronicle of the effects of the terrible sectarian violence of Northern Ireland in the 1970s contains a message applicable to all such sectarian conflicts. The tale is set in Belfast when Catholic and Protestant leaders were trying to create a truce and lessen the increasing violence. Unfortunately, tough street gangs continue to exacerbate the problems by acting independently to keep hatred and brutality alive. The figurehead leader of one such gang is Kenny, who considers himself a soldier against the IRA. The group is really run by the bigoted Ginger who hates all Catholics. These fanatics have a terrible effect on the children who grow up admiring them and vow to follow in their footsteps. Meanwhile, a Catholic who is not involved with the IRA endeavors to raise his two children and keep them safe upon the streets. The plot covers a 24-hour period in the characters' lives and begins with the explosion of an IRA bomb in a Protestant pub. Ginger and the gang are enraged and begin a harrowing rampage against the local Catholics.
