Synopsis

The 1999 elections for newly independent Northern Ireland's first Prime Minister are well underway, with Michael Brinn (Robert Lindsay) the hot favourite. However, journalist Dan Starkey (David Thewlis) discovers a seedier side to Brinn's politics after meeting and spending the night with Margaret (Laura Fraser), whose father was Brinn's right-hand man. Shortly after giving Dan an audio cassette, Margaret is murdered - her dying words sounding something like 'divorce... Jack'. This all leads to Dan going on the run, with US reporter Charles Parker (Richard Gant) and strip-o-gram girl Lee (Rachel Griffiths) in tow, and the police, loyalist terrorists and the IRA in pursuit.
