SHOOTING FOR SOCRATES is a David Vs. Goliath set in Belfast against the backdrop of the 1986 World Cup. Starring John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Mummy) as Billy Bingham, Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones) as Jackie Fullerton and 2014 BAFTA Nominee Nico Mirallegro (The Village, Spike Island) as David Campbell, it tells the story of a momentous time in Northern Ireland's football history through the eyes of players, fans and the media. The film also follows the lives of passionate football supporter Arthur and his son Tommy from East Belfast. The lead up to a momentous day in the life of a young boy (his 10th birthday) mirrors the build up to the big day for the Northern Ireland football team as they play the greatest match of their lives.
