 Title  In the Name of the Father
Here we see Irishmen as victims of British oppression. This is the story of the "Guildford Four" who were wrongly convicted of bombing an English pub in 1974. Believed to be members of the IRA, the four were railroaded into confessing and sent to prison. Their families and the press kept hope alive for years until the convictions were overturned.
