By David Leland. Prisoners of war apparently being brutally tortured by terrorists in Northern Ireland are eventually revealed to be soldiers from the same army on a psychologically gruelling training exercise which gets out of hand.

Directed, with the same flair for disorienting camerawork he would apply to the infamous Screen Two Troubles saga Elephant, by Alan Clarke. With John Duttine, Colin Blakely and Warren Clarke.
