Sammy and his three friends live in the Ardoyne, an impoverished, predominantly Catholic area of North Belfast that has become the epicentre of a country intent on cannibalising itself. They dream of a Free State, and their methods for achieving this are uncompromising, even as they fully indulge in the spoils of war. But when punk rock arrives Sammy finds himself increasingly isolated. An exploration of what it means to 'go rogue', of the heartbreak and devastation that commitment to 'the cause' can engender, of ideas of martyrdom, fatherhood, and self-sacrifice.
