Based on a true event, Silent Grace is an extraordinary story about an unshakeable bond between two very different people. An unlikely friendship emerges when a wild young joyrider is thrown into the same prison cell as the highest ranking Republican prisoner. At war with each other at first, the IRA woman saves the younger inmate's sanity and in return she helps to save the political prisoner's life. "controversial and sympathetic" vanessa thorpe,
