Synopsis

Premiered at the 2003 London Film Festival, this film dramatises the imprisonment of hostages Brian Keenan (Ian Hart) and John McCarthy (Linus Roache) in Beirut the mid-1980s. Brian Keenan, from Belfast, was teaching English when he was captured, while journalist John McCarthy had just filed a story on Keenan's abduction before being kidnapped himself. The two very different men were held together for four and a half years, and forged a friendship that kept them sane through cruelty, deprivation and torture.
