A gripping tale of betrayal, redemption, and secrets unearthed!

Prepare for a heart-pounding journey into the tumultuous world of 1981. Opening in the ‘Maiden City’ of Derry Northern Ireland, where the Troubles cast a long, dark shadow over lives and loyalties. In the midst of this chaos, meet Quinn, a former IRA operative who exchanged his gun for a life on a peaceful rural farm in Armagh.

But the past has a way of catching up, especially when it's shrouded in secrets and buried bodies.
