Running time: 1h45m

In the Spring of 1981 the relentless cycle of violence in Northern Ireland took a profound turn inside the infamous Maze Prison. Seeking the right to be treated as political prisoners as opposed to common criminals, Bobby Sands along with nine other IRA prisoners began a hunger strike that attracted the world’s attention. Brendan J Byrne’s stirring documentary combines previously unseen archive footage, with Sands’ personal diaries and illuminating eye-witness testimonials to provide a rare insight into a turbulent period in Irish history and the iconic political figure.
