Description: Martin Fallon is an IRA bomber who tries to blow up a troop truck but instead kills a bus load of school children. He loses heart and quits the movement and goes to London trying to leave the U.K. and start a new life. The IRA wants him back (he knows too much) and the local crime boss, Meehan, will only help him if he performs one last hit, on a rival crime boss. When Fallon does perform the hit, he is seen by a catholic priest. He refuses to kill an innocent again and must find a way to escape the police without killing the priest who can identify him.

Dangerous Dream Girls (28 movies items)

"Siobhan Siobhan is an IRA operative. She's always calm, always collected. She does her job, and she doesn't hesitate. She's also beautiful, which makes her disarming, and men are likely to drop their guard when she's around. The only problem is, she seems to lack any kind of remorse or morality. She will kill absolutely anybody who threatens the cause of a unified Ireland. And that includes her co-workers. "
