This study of a British TV crew interviewing a Belfast family in the war-strewn Catholic district focuses upon the death of a child hit by a stray plastic bullet fired by a British soldier. Adshead, as the chief reporter, becomes politically involved in the incident. Her producer,

Rashleigh, is apprehensive and, once back in London, makes sure that the most indicting footage is destroyed. Tense moments are undermined by incoherent accents and tedious opening segments of a story seeming to have no destination. The film appears to be a production by committee, dragging along

until everyone has put in their bit. It is nevertheless a good, if unintentional, profile of self-indulgent, affluent British media reps who appear to be slumming among their stories and dining on expensive cuisine while mouthing meaningless empathy for the subjects of their lenses and

microphones.
