Feature Documentary | London Film Festival

One night Majella O’Donnell took her teenage 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 they are still at war. They do not accept the government or police. They have their ‘own’ ways.  All this happens within the United Kingdom.

How do you bring your son to be shot? What happens afterwards? How does a war really end?

For five years Sinéad O’Shea has filmed this shocking portrait of a post conflict society. Executive Produced by Emmy Award winning André Singer and Oscar nominated Joshua Oppenheimer.
