Henry Herbert directed this British drama, the first feature filmed in its entirety in Northern Ireland since the cease-fire. Colin Bateman scripted by adapting his novel, Cycle of Violence. Reporter Kevin Miller (Gerard Rooney) attends his father's wake, goes back to the office drunk, and is reassigned to cover events in the small border town of Crossmaheart where he meets Marie (Maria Lennon), girlfriend of a previous journalist who mysteriously vanished. When the body turns up, Marie departs, leaving Kevin to get to the bottom of the mystery. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
