Shadow Dancer tells a tale of impossible choices and devastating betrayal, with the Northern Ireland conflict as its backdrop. Colette McVeigh (Andrea Riseborough) has been involved the Republican cause since childhood when her brother was killed by British troops. But when she’s arrested in connection to a London bomb plot, MI5 agent, Mac (Clive Owen), turns that connection to his advantage. Faced with a hefty jail term and losing her beloved son, Colette is forced to spy on her own family and friends. But when Shadow Dancer’s plot comes to a head, will she be trapped by her own web of lies?
