"During an aborted bomb attempt in London, Collette (Andrea Riseborough) falls into the hands of an MI5 officer, Mac (Owen), who offers her a deal: turn informant or go to prison. Fearing for her son’s welfare, she returns to Belfast where - betraying family and beliefs - she becomes a reluctant mole for British intelligence. As suspicion of Collette mounts and Mac takes increasing risks to protect her, both feel the net closing in." (Sundance Film Festival) Hide
