Harrowing recreation of the hunger strikes of the early '80s in the Maze Prison just outside of Belfast. Officer Raymond Lohan is part of the team in charge of the infamous H-Blocks. He arrives at work to welcome new inmate Davey Gillen, who joins his republican brothers on the blanket and no-wash protest. Davey shares a cell with fellow non-conformer Gerry Campbell, who introduces his brother in arms to H-Block's leader, Bobby Sands. When violence erupts in the prison and riot police brutalise the inmates, Sands resolves to protest by starving himself to death.
