Graham Bamford, a British citizen, has set himself alight on 29 April, 1993 in front of the House of Commons. He did this in an attempt to change the attitude of the British government towards the war in former Yugoslavia. This is a film about Graham, his actions, the silence built up around them, but also about the filmmaker and his effort to produce a film about the event.
