Synopsis

A depiction of the events of the infamous bloody massacre which took place on Sunday, January 30, 1972 when twenty-seven civilians were gunned down by the British Army in the streets of Northern Ireland. The story revolves around two young men who are caught up in the cross fire. One is an idealistic civil rights leader, and the other is a teenage Catholic boy. Witness testimony contradicts the official findings of the government-sponsored investigation committee, which, in the first few months following the tragedy, cleared the British Army of any wrong-doing. The events fueled a twenty-five-year cycle of violence between Britain and elements of Ireland, both North and South.
