Kenneth Branagh looks back at his childhood in late 1960s Belfast. Surrounded by sporadic violence and growing danger, nine-year-old Buddy (Jude Hill) finds himself confronted with the ugly reality of sectarian conflict. Buddy tries his best to understand The Troubles – after all, someone must be responsible for forcing people to flee their homes. Now, his family must come face to face with a nearly impossible, life-altering decision: stay or start packing? With Judi Dench and Ciaran Hinds as Buddy’s grandparents.
