The International Hotel lies at the heart of Belfast city. It is January 1967, the day before the inaugural meeting of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association.

In Belfast it's a day like any other for eighteen-year old Danny, working behind the bar of the International Hotel, watching the comings and goings of the eccentric clientèle.

But ordinary days like this in Belfast are almost over. The next day the International will host the inaugural meeting of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association. And the hotel has already been witness to the city's dark leanings - Danny's job was only secured after four of the previous barmen were shot dead.

Intelligent, funny and humane, The International lovingly and poignantly recaptures the texture of Belfast life 'as it was then, before it was brought shaking, quaking, and laying about it with batons and stones on to the world's small screens'.
