'Could peace come after? After what? Who will we be?’

Easter morning, 1916. Gunshots ring out in the Dublin streets. In her suburban sitting-room Hanna prepares for revolution.

While Frank walks through the crowds calling for peace, John walks through his nightmares of the trenches and sees a city soaked in blood. 18-year-old William fearfully reports to the barracks for duty, determined to serve the British army with honour. But can honour survive the chaos of conflict, and once unleashed can violence ever be contained?
