After 40 years of conflict in Northern Ireland, the Good Friday agreement ushered in a period of relative peace and stability in the northwest corner of Europe. But the unintended consequences of the UK leaving the European Union have threatened to reignite a sectarian fire that many thought had been extinguished long ago. This film takes the audience on a journey to both sides of the Irish Sea to explore the social, political, and economic impact of Brexit on Northern Ireland.
