Silent Grace is about retaining dignity
in the most undignified of circumstances and not giving
up. The film looks at a traumatic
moment in Anglo/Irish history from a Good Friday Agreement
The film also raises very contemporary questions:
should you treat your 'enemy' when incarcerated?
- Should 'terrorists' have
human rights too?
- How far should you go for the things you believe in?
