Synopsis: A fictional account of the extraordinary story of two implacable enemies in Northern Ireland-- firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley, played by Timothy Spall and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness, played by Colm Meaney—who, in October 2006, are forced to take a short journey together in which they will take the biggest leap of faith and change the course of history. In the middle of serious negotiations by all parties, Paisley and McGuinness begrudgingly agree to ride together to the airport to ensure that neither is subject to an assassination attempt. The two are secretly monitored via hidden surveillance cameras by the British prime minister, Tony Blair; the Irish prime minister, Bertie Ahern; a British government operative; and, eventually, McGuinness’s Sinn Fein compatriot Gerry Adams. “The performances are absolutely delicious, with Mr. Meaney droll and understated and Mr. Spall fiery and derisive, yet not above a joke.” – Andy Webster, N.Y. Times.
