An aimless Catholic boy participates in seemingly minor IRA errands, and becomes a party the murder of a Protestant policeman. He falls in love with the older Marcella, to the point of infatuation, only learning later that her husband was the killed policeman; meanwhile, police continue to follow leads. Highly improbable romantic drama set in the Troubles, with Mirren somewhat miscast.
