Synopsis

In 1990, at the age of 31, Veronica Guerin abandoned an unsuccessful career in public relations and took up journalism. In the following six years she became Dublin's most celebrated investigative reporter through a series of articles exposing the drug barons of the city's underworld. On June 26, 1996, she was shot dead in her car by an unknown assasin. This particular account gives a fictionalized chronicle of Veronica Guerin's brief, but spectacular journalistic career.
