SYNOPSIS: New Lodge. A catholic area in the heart of Belfast. Seven tower blocks of 12 floors each. The Northern Irish conflict has hit hard this little community that is slowly rebuilding today. Where are they, twenty years after the cease-fire, the habitants of this vertical microcosm, marked forever by the trauma of the bloody period of “Troubles”?
