Danny (Stephen Rea) is the gifted but unstable saxophonist in an Armagh dance band. One night he witnesses the murder of the band’s manager and a deaf-mute girl by local racketeers. Danny determines to avenge their deaths. But his search for the killers evolves into a hopeless obsession, destroying first his relationship with musician girlfriend Deirdre, and eventually causing him to violate his own moral code. Neil Jordan’s feature debut set against the backdrop of Northern Ireland’s troubles.
