a neutral view from outside the conflict

If I understood everything correctly (the relations weren't always clear), it is (intended) like this:

A mapmaker (surprise!) enters the area around the Irish-Northern Irish border in this "political ghost story`. It is the time of the peace process. Slightly rooted there via his granfather he is a stranger on terrain filled with emotion and meaning, soaked with blood. His work unearthes the dead, provokes threats and suppressed hate. When Gogan finishes his protagonist's work with a tape recorded by an assumed informer (killed therefore), Protestants and Catholics get united having a look at his map. An atmospherically dense glimpse of hope. Hopefully to provide a perspective opposed to the ghosts of the past and the madness of a hybrid everyday life between openness and deceit.
