66 Days

66 Days

At seventeen, Bobby Sands was interested in girls, soccer and music. Ten years later he led a prison protest against the conditions in Northern Ireland’s infamous H-Blocks that grabbed the attention of the whole world. On his death on May 5th 1981, parliaments across the world stopped for a minute’s silence in his memory. 66 Days is the story of his hunger strike in what became the epicentre of one of the most tense and defining moments of the conflict in Northern Ireland.
