Twenty years have passed since the Good Friday Agreement was signed, but the specter of violence still looms over Northern Ireland. In this documentary, viewers are taken on a journey through the streets of Belfast, where peace remains a tenuous concept.
Despite the ongoing clashes between Protestants and Catholics, Mairéad O’Donnell has dedicated her life to securing peace for the people of Belfast. As a member of the Sinn Féin party and a devout Catholic Irish nationalist, she faces an uphill battle. The Protestant fraternal organization, The Orange Order, commemorates their win against Catholics in 1690 every year by organizing processions throughout Northern Ireland, donning orange sashes and black bowler hats. To the Catholic community, this is nothing but provocation, leading to frequent clashes. With unparalleled access to the situation on the ground, this documentary is sure to be an eye-opener.
