“You will be riveted to your seat in a film that has not one false note” —Paddy Kehoe, RTE Ireland. After the highly-publicized hunger strike of Irish Republican Army (IRA) members in 1983, the remaining political prisoners are placed in the HMZ Maze, considered the most secure jail in Europe. Among these former hunger strikers, Larry Marley (played by top Irish actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor, Avengers: Infinity War) devises a plan to break out of this seemingly-impenetrable fortress, but must succeed while being incarcerated among Irish loyalists (his enemies), skeptical IRA members, and a prison warden keeping a close eye on Marley. An ingenious escape plan requiring no digging or tunneling plays out, with a poignant, complicated but honest twist ending…

MAZE has proven to be a festival and reviewer favorite, favorably compared to THE GREAT ESCAPE (100% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes so far). Unrated. 92 Min.
