Set in 1990s Belfast, an active member of the IRA becomes an informant for MI5 in order to protect her son’s welfare. The eponymous book upon which this film is based is written by BBC journalist Tom Bradby who reported from Northern Ireland in the 1990’s, the era in which this film is set. There are no good guys/bad guys as such, just people responding to a time and period over which they had no control. (1hr 41m)
