London late June 1916: three men, two wars, one prison cell.
The Easter Rising in Dublin has been crushed, its leaders executed. The Somme Offensive, where a million men will die or be wounded, is about to begin. In the military wing of Wandsworth Prison, Alfred a young British army deserter and veteran of the trenches on Verdun is bunked in with Liam, an Irish Volunteer from the Rising, and Henry, a conscientious objector. Can these three men with their very different views on war find any common cause with each other?
