The adventure-filled crime-drama Maze is inspired by the true events of the infamous 1983 prison breakout of 38 IRA prisoners from Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP), which was to become the biggest prison escape in Europe since World War II.

Up against him is the most state-of-the-art and secure prison in the whole of Europe – a prison within a prison. While scheming his way towards pulling off this feat, Larry (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, The Infiltrator) comes into close contact with prison warder Gordon Close (Barry Ward, Jimmy’s Hall).

Larry and Gordon’s complex journey begins with cautious, chess-like moves. Initially, Gordon holds all the power in their relationship and rejects all of Larry’s attempts at establishing a friendship between them. Bit by bit, Larry wears down Gordon’s defenses, maneuvering himself into a position of trust. And thus the scheming begins…

As both the epicenter of an enduring conflict and the source of its eventual resolution, the story of Maze is the story of the troubles themselves.

Written and directed by Stephen Burke, the movie’s DVD and Blu-ray incarnations include the following:

  • Director’s Commentary by Stephen Burke
  • Short film ’81’ by Stephen Burke
