The Making of 'Anton' -- Inspired by true events.

After time spent at sea, Anton O'Neill (Anthony Fox) returns to find that Ireland is a radically different place to the one he left behind. Northern Ireland is in flames, and civil unrest has spilled south of the border to his beloved home in County Cavan.

Blinded by hatred and misguided patriotism, Anton is led into an illicit world of violence and is forced to choose between his family and his country.

Hunted and on the run, he is drawn into a shocking battle of wills with the law and his former accomplices, ending in an explosive showdown in which he must risk everything to protect the woman he loves.
