Fergus returns to Liverpool for the funeral of his friend Frankie, a fellow private security contractor who has been killed in Baghdad. Suspicious of the official account of his death, Fergus starts to investigate, fuelled by the discovery of a shocking recording Frankie made days before he died.
Penned by longtime collaborator Paul Laverty, Ken Loach’s damning indictment of the privatisation of the Iraq war critiques political laxity through the lens of grief. Moving between the combat zone and Liverpool, this taut conspiracy noir uncovers the barbaric cruelties done in the name of justice.
