A fictional story based on true events, Silent Grace is a gripping story of friendship and survival.

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 perspective.

The film also raises very contemporary questions:
- How should you treat your 'enemy' when incarcerated?
- Should 'terrorists' have human rights too?
- How far should you go for the things you believe in?
