Storyline

One night, Majella O'Donnell took her teen-age son Philly to be shot in both legs. Majella, Philly and his shooters all live within an extraordinary community in Derry, Northern Ireland. 'The Troubles' officially ended in 1998, but this community is still at war. They do not accept the government or police. All this happens within the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. How do you bring your son to be shot? What happens afterwards? How does family life continue? How does a community respond? When do wars really end? For five years, Sinéad O'Shea has filmed this shocking portrait of a post-conflict society.
