In 1981, Bobby Sands, a young twenty-seven-year-old man from the Irish Republican Army detained in Northern Ireland’s Maze Prison, begins a hunger strike to protest the British government’s refusal to recognize captured members of the IRA as political prisoners. As McQueen reveals Bobby’s last living days in prison, we witness what a man is willing to endure to make his voice heard.
