Director Ken Loach and writer Paul Laverty's powerful romantic drama draws attention to political and human rights abuses abroad. Robert Carlyle stars as George, a Glaswegian bus driver who becomes attracted to one of his regular passengers, a Nicaraguan woman named Carla. As the two become closer, it becomes apparent that Carla is in exile following the disappearance of her boyfriend, Antonio, probably at the hands of the CIA-backed counter-insurgent Contras. In search of the truth, they travel to Nicaragua - where George receives a rude political awakening.
Two undocumented migrants form a close bond as they help each other navigate the hostile and dangerous underbelly of a London most of us never see.
