Trailer for Borstal Boy.

Borstal Boy stars Shawn Hatosy as Brendan Behan, a sixteen year-old republican, who is sent on a bombing mission from Ireland to Liverpool during the second world war.

His mission is thwarted when he is apprehended, charged and imprisoned in Borstal, a reform institution for young offenders in East Anglia, England.

At Borstal, Brendan is forced to live face-to-face with those he perceived as "the enemy," a confrontation that reveals a deep inner conflict in the young Brendan and forces a self-examination that is both traumatic and revealing.
