British soldier Gary’s first deployment isn’t what he had imagined; rather than travelling far abroad he is sent to Belfast, the centre of the complex, violent crisis in Northern Ireland. Following a disastrous mission, Gary finds himself left behind by his regiment, injured and lost in an unfamiliar city. This nerve-shredding thriller follows his attempt to get back to the barracks, negotiating the dizzying maze of streets with little understanding of where to go and who to trust. In the midst of rising tension and paranoia, Jack O’Connell’s skillfully understated central performance grips the viewer till the final frames.
