The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall

2008 NR

When peace activist and photography student Tom Hurndall (Matthew McNulty) is shot by an Israeli sniper while attempting to rescue a group of Palestinian children, his grieving parents (Stephen Dillane and Kerry Fox) demand answers but are met with stony silence from the authorities. Determined to uncover the truth, the Hurndalls launch their own investigation. Rowan Joffe directs this poignant drama inspired by true events.
