Michael used to work in the Irish army, but he left because he wanted to spend more time with his family. He came to know that the soldier who shot his wife is in London, so he goes there to take his revenge.
WHY DID BRITISH SOLDIER HENRY SHOOT CAROL?
After his action, the British Army arrested Henry, who shot Carol. But he said that it was an accident. They were going to arrest Michael, and he thought that Michael was also hiding in the car. When they reached there, Carol jumped out due to labor pain she was having.
Henry thought that she must be armed and going to attack her, so he accidentally shot her. He had no intention of shooting a pregnant woman, but he was still suspended from the army. Later, a man named Holland hired him to work for him. We later find out that Holland is actually making a team of sharpshooters from the British army to work with him to clean the Irish forces (IRA) from London.
On the other hand, Keenan, the chief of IRA, is also a cunning man. When Michael came to him for help, he said that Michael had to prove himself first to take revenge. Michael knows that his intentions are not good but agreed because he wants to take revenge somehow.
As soon as he reaches London, he sees Ruth, Henry’s lover, who runs a small clothes shop in the market. He almost goes to kill her but stops at the last moment because he doesn’t want to take the life of an innocent and runs away from there.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MICHAEL AND HENRY?
In the end, when Henry came to know about the incident that Michael almost killed his girlfriend, he tracked him down. Michael was at the beach waiting to go back to his country when Henry reached there and started chasing him, shooting him with his gun.
Henry finally catches him, where he tells him that he was extremely sorry for shooting his wife. Michael died after being shot multiple times by him. After a few years, Ruth is pregnant, and they are living happily. But one day, Henry is shot by a sniper, and it turns out that it was Michael’s friend, Twomey, who shot him. The movie ends.
