This is a love story about six people. It is also a story of survival and the indomitable human spirit in Belfast, a city reminiscent of any in the world where there is violence and conflict. Tessie and Maire are young Irish Catholics who have been friends all of their lives. One is fiercely loyal to Irish unity; the other is uncommitted. Tom and Charlie are young British soldiers determined to stay alive in the bitter strife they neither understand nor care about. The other two are Tessie's mother and Charlie's wife. Tessie's and Tom's paths cross. As they turn to one another, they find something precious in a world of loss and are caught in a ferocious trap, which ensnares all six.
