Some Mother’s Son

Some Mother’s Son

Kathleen Quigley's only son, Gerard, a member of the IRA, is shot and captured by the British Army and charged with the murder of a British soldier. In prison, Gerard shares a cell with Bobby Sands, the leader of the protests by H-Block political prisoners. When Gerard goes on hunger strike, Kathleen is forced to find her own way amidst a quagmire of powerful forces attempting to manipulate her as a political pawn. Her friendship with Annie, whose son is also on the hunger strike, grows as Kathleen's well-ordered world turns into a brutal, heart-stopping struggle for her son's life, a life he is willing to sacrifice.
