Summary, etc.: Henry Rollins has long been a critic of the American occupation in Iraq and now travels to Northern Ireland to present a unique case study on the parallels of the conflict that turned Northern Ireland into a battleground for thirty odd years and represented decades of sectarian violence that was escalated by Britain's military occupation of the region. Henry conducts exclusive interviews with those who played a significant role during "The Troubles" of Northern Ireland and their thoughts on how America, too, can come to find resolution in Iraq. Interviews include legendary civil rights leader Eamonn McCann, who played a major role in "Bloody Sunday," the First Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, Peter Robinson, and a discreet interview with a former IRA member who fought and killed for the resistance against the British Military and subsequently was sentenced to life imprisonment. With just a few days to explore the country around a sold out show in Belfast.
