    • Synopsis
    • This violent, zany and blackly comic thriller, adapted from Colin Bateman's widely acclaimed novel, is set against the background of contemporary Northern Ireland, besieged by chaos, violence and unrest. Dan Starkey is a hard-drinking satirical journalist with the Belfast Evening News. When Starkey is caught by his wife Patricia in the arms of Margaret (the daughter of Prime Ministerial candidate Michael Brinn's right hand man) the politics begin to get heated. His life spins out of control when Margaret is murdered. But why? By whom? All Starkey has to go on are her last words: "Divorce Jack".
