Synopsis

A dramatization of the events preceding the historic 2006 St. Andrews Agreement, which brought peace to Northern Ireland after years of violent strife between Unionist and Republican factions.
The extraordinary story of two implacable enemies in Northern Ireland — firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness — who are forced to take a short journey together in which they will take the biggest leap of faith and change the course of modern history.
It is at this moment the two sworn enemies put their past actions behind them and begin to forge an unexpected friendship that would lead to them being known as “The Chuckle Brothers.”
