Ireland, 1920. Damien O'Donovan is leaving for London for an internship, until the dreaded Black and Tans attack his hurling mates, killing one for not speaking English. Thus sidetracked by the Irish War for Independence, Damien is convinced by his brother Teddy to throw his lot in with the IRA. Damien is a purist, an idealist, and therefore marked for a tragic destiny, while Teddy is a fatefully pragmatic politician. These differences between the brothers propel the film through its terrible final act, as the signing of Anglo-Irish Treaty establishes the Irish Free State, splits the Republican movement, and unleashes the Irish Civil War

It is 1987 and in Carla's home country the US-backed Contra rebels are mounting their final lethal assault against the Sandinista government." "At first, Carla resists George's attentions. But he persists, fascinated both by her beauty and by the traumatic mystery that he senses in her past. Emboldened by her love for George, Carla returns with him to Nicaragua and to the turmoil which has engulfed her country." "Carla's Song reflects on the burden the past imposes on the present - both politically and emotionally - while celebrating, with distinctive Glaswegian humour, the unquenchable strength of the human spirit."--BOOK JACKET
