A mother and her two children return home from Christmas shopping in the Catholic Bogside in Derry (aka Londonderry). Since the bloody Sunday nearly three decades ago, Derry has become one of the hottest points for sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. The IRA and its sympathizers consider themselves in war with the British and the Protestants. Thus those who are captured for whatever reason are considered to be POWs. Few outsiders would fully comprehend the root of the rancour between the two religious groups, only hope that the recent Stormont peace accord will reduce the rampant violence if not achieve total reconciliation.
