    Post-ceasefire Northern Ireland.

  • Synopsis

    Sandra Richardson is preparing to take her seat on the first day of the new Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Northern Ireland when her long lost sister Teeni explodes into the chamber and assaults the South African chairwoman.

    To find out if this is a terrorist plot or just her sister’s way of announcing her return to Belfast, Sandra bundles Teeni into a disused room hidden along the corridors of power.

    With the world’s press and Stormont’s security officers waiting to invade, Sandra and Teeni must learn very quickly how to talk to each other. They need to relive the violence that shattered their family, but first they have to agree what the truth is and who has the right to tell it.
