Adapted by Daniel Mornin from his novel All Our Fault, Nothing Personal revolves around opposing paramilitary groups during a precarious ceasefire in 1970's Belfast. The film follows a squad of Loyalist paramilitaries led by the war-weary Kenny, and his psychopathic accomplice, Ginger. Tommy, a young teenager, is impressed by the power the men of violence possess and is invited by Kenny to go out on patrol. This becomes a baptism of fire as the gang torture an innocent Catholic, who Kenny discovers to be a childhood friend. The film juxtaposes the madness of the paramilitary gangs with the innocence of youth - an innocence easily endangered.
