This fact-based British drama tells the story of real-life Sgt. Caroline Meagher (Helen Baxendale) in a flashback to 1978, a time when Meagher realized she was a lesbian and began a secret affair with a Scottish woman, eventually attracting suspicion while running a Northern Ireland military base. In 1990, "special investigators" took her away for questioning, but before her homosexuality was proven, Meagher quit the army which previously denied it kept intelligence files on lesbians but now admits this is true. Documentary filmmaker Chris Oxley made his drama directorial debut with this film, which adds an interview with the real Caroline Meagher at the conclusion. Shown at the 1998 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
