 Title  Titanic Town
This story of the Troubles in Northern Ireland rings so true because it's based on the autobiography of the daughter of Bernie McPhelimy, the peace activist. Set in West Belfast, (where the Titanic was built - hence the title) our story concerns a catholic woman who lives in a guarded development during the 1972 uptick in violence. She moved there from the inner city to escape the escalating violence. When her friend is accidently shot and killed, she just gets fed up. She's fed up with the British soldiers and she's equally fed up with the IRA. In her unsophisticated, down-home way she petitions for peace. Naturally, friends and neighbors are skeptical. Not surprisingly, the authorities are suspicious. Still, it is the unwanted attention put on her family that is the most difficult challenge. Link to reviews Click picture
