This documentary traces the lives of the "Forgotten Ten" during the Irish War of Independence. Following courts martial, the British forces executed ten IRA prisoners at the Mountjoy Prison between 1920 and 1921 during the Irish War of Independence and buried them within the prison precincts in unmarked graves. After eighty years of protest and activism, their bodies were exhumed and reburied in a state funeral.
