On March 1, 1981, Provisional IRA volunteer Bobby Sands began a hunger strike at HM Prison Maze in Northern Ireland as an act of defiance against Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her government. Sixty six days later, he died as a result of his self-imposed starvation, aged 27. This documentary draws upon Sands' diary, penned during the first 17 days of the hunger strike, as well as the inmate's poems and letters to understand the psychology of a man who was willing to die for his beliefs.
