Northern Ireland. In 1999, one year after the Good Friday peace accord, sectarian violence still runs rampant in Belfast and the hatred between Protestant and Catholic runs deep. Liam's father is a peacemaker to the Catholic community. When his parents are brutally murdered, Liam is forced to run for his life. Taken to a police safe house, Liam is betrayed and forced to run again, from the very people who are supposed to be protecting him.
