About the Film

Philosopher Sira Abenoza believes that most conflicts in society are due to a lack of dialogue. After putting her Socratic dialogue method into practice in Spain and Central America she travels to Northern Ireland to sit at a table with former members and sympathisers of the IRA, former members and sympathisers of Unionist paramilitary groups, a former British soldier and a former policeman. Together they set out on an exercise of dialogue which, in the words of the participants, "is a path towards the unknown" and "the only way to build peace".
