Based on the 1981 hunger strike in North Ireland's Maze Prison, Some Mother's Son explores the roles of love, family, and faith in revolutionary politics. Mothers of two strikers, including Provisional Irish Republican Army member Bobby Sands (1954-1981), prepare to support their loved ones' extreme actions to fight for their status as POWs.
