« Go back
An imprisoned IRA man, played by Stephen Rea, takes part in a spectacular and violent jailbreak from the Maze prison. In the aftermath of the escape, most are recaptured or killed, but Rea somehow eludes the helicopters and, after a brief farewell to his wife, is smuggled out to New York where he takes up a bleak and impoverished existence as a dishwasher.

Despite his loner tendencies, he becomes friendly with a South American kitchen porter. Rea soon becomes romantically involved with the man's sister.

Rea soon discovers that they are both members of a revolutionary cell, dedicated to the overthrow of the repressive regime in their country. He also finds out that they are rank amateurs, purely driven by idealism, but lacking any basic military skills. Rea begins to involve himself in training them, since he knows that their naivete will probably prove fatal in combat.

The arrival in New York of the dictator responsible for the torture and execution of their parents brings matters to a head.
