Majella O’Donnell took her adolescent son Philly to be shot in both legs one night. Majella, Philly, and his shooters all live in Derry, Northern Ireland. While the “Troubles” formally ended in 1998, the conflict continues. They despise the government and the police.
Much of this takes place under the United Kingdom’s jurisdiction. How do you bring your son to be shot?
So, what happens next? What is the state of family life now? What is a community’s reaction? When do wars truly come to an end? Sinéad O’Shea has been filming this disturbing yet darkly humorous portrayal of a post-conflict society for five years.
