The story of the infamous 1819 Peterloo massacre in St Peters Field Manchester.
A peaceful rally to demand political reform and to protest against rising levels of poverty when an unprovoked attack by British Forces led to multiple deaths and hundreds of injuries.
These events created a national outcry and was a defining moment in British democracy, it also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.
A film that brings those tragic events to life.
