Powerful docu-drama by award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern, which sheds light on how the worst disaster ever to hit British sport happened, and its devastating consequences. 96 people lost their lives at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest played at the Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield. The film follows three families, from their initial excitement at getting tickets for the game, to the disaster and the subsequent emotional and legal struggles. As the families try to come to terms with their losses and fight for justice, police evidence goes missing and further questions arise.
