Raised in working-class Belfast, investigative journalist Lyra McKee highlighted the consequences of the Troubles, seeking justice for crimes that had been forgotten since the Good Friday Agreement. Her murder by dissident Republicans in 2019 sent shockwaves across the world. This wonderfully crafted film seeks answers to Lyra’s senseless killing through her own work and words. The result is a complex picture of Northern Ireland’s political history, bringing into sharp focus the ways in which the promise of peace has yet to be realised.
