Synopsis: 

"Narrated by Anjelica Huston, Daughters of the Troubles: Belfast Stories is a dramatic personal narrative of the lives of two working-class Belfast women told against the backdrop of the city's violent history. The one-hour documentary, produced, directed and co-written by Emmy Award-winning documentary producer Marcia Rock, focuses on the social impact of decades of political upheaval--25 years to be exact. Belfast first erupted in violence in August, 1969 and British military troops patrolled her streets until February, 1995. A whole generation of young people grew up knowing nothing but the bitterness of a divided city and the ever present horror of death. It also offers a new perspective--the history of Northern Ireland's Troubles told from the point of view of the women."
