Summary

Vivian is a cosmopolitan Taiwanese American tourist who often escapes her busy life in London through adventure and travel. Johnny is a 15-year-old Irish teenager living a neglected life on the margins of society.

On a bright spring afternoon in West Belfast, their paths collide during a horrifying act of violence.

Inspired by true events, this is a story of the dark chapters and chance encounters that can irrevocably determine the shape of our lives.

Interesting and relevant story

Enjoyment was slightly marred by the appalling accent s when the female narrator spoke words of Irish characters.,this really distracted me from an otherwise compelling story told with empathy.
