Fergus (Stephen Rea) is a grunt in [[TheTroubles the IRA]]. He and his cell capture a British soldier stationed in Ireland, Jody (Creator/ForestWhitaker). They hold him hostage, hoping Britain will release one of their own in exchange for Jody's safety. If the British government refuses to comply, the IRA will execute Jody. Fergus is only supposed to guard the prisoner. He's not supposed to take his hood off. He's definitely not supposed to humanize Jody. Unfortunately, Fergus is at heart, a decent guy. He can't resist treating Jody humanely.
