Storyline

'H3' is a universal story of endurance and courage set inside Europe's most secure prison, the Maze prison in Northern Ireland. Here, in H3 - the bleakest of all the H-blocks - a group of young republican prisoners hold out for what they believe in, refusing to be labeled as criminals or co-operate with prison authorities. However, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is determined that these Republican prisoners will be treated like all the other common criminals in British jails, ending a special regime which allowed the inmates political status to organise life inside the jail along POW lines. The republican prisoners immediately start a 'no-wash' protest, refusing to wear prison-issue clothes or perform work duties, a protest which results in their being locked in their cells for hours on end without exercise, recreation, reading materials and with only blankets to wear for heat. After four years on this protest, morale is at an all time low and everyone knows that something ... Written by Anonymous

Difficult to find--But well worth the watch
23 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a beautifully done drama about a difficult subject. The point of view taken in the film is the prisoner who must pick the names of replacements for hunger strike. It was a difficult task to take this subject and make it watchable, but I think they were successful in doing so. Done with dignity, it shows the humanity and even the humor of those involved. Brendan Mackey was great as Seamus. For anyone interested in Irish history or in Irish films in general, you really can't go wrong the purchase. There is some nudity, but all is necessary and none is sexual in nature. One of the best DVD purchases I have made.
