 Title  Some Mother's Son
Perhaps the best way to show the devastating effect of war is through the eyes of the soldier's mother. In 1981, the height of the war in Northern Ireland, a crack down on IRA activities landed many young Catholics in British jails. Through two mothers we are shown, blow-by-blow, the events that lead up to the hunger strikes of Bobby Sands and his compatriots as they insisted on being treated as prisoners of war and not as criminals.
