Set against the backdrop of British occupation of Northern Ireland in 1985, an Irish farmer struggles to save his drowning horse as his daughter looks on in horror. When a young British soldier offers to help, he is forced to confront his enemy. This Academy Award nominated film is a moving portrait of personal loss amid political conflict.
