Keenan and McCarthy spent 4.5 years confined together, held underground for much of their captivity, at times chained to each other and to the walls of their prisons. The two men, who could easily have found themselves at opposite ends of a gun barrel in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, instead forged a relationship which transcended all that appeared to divide them. “Blind Flight” tells the story of this compelling relationship as they both resurrect their deepest memories, feelings, fears and loves. In their near biblical journey they uncover many of the forces which made them blind and captive human beings prior to their physical captivity. They finally discover a compassion for their captors which makes the film a ‘love story’ in the fullest and most humanistic sense.

Their plans are thrown for a loop when representatives from immigration services make a surprise visit to Brontë’s new apartment – supposedly her and Georges’ new apartment – in a clampdown on such marriages of convenience which constitute fraud. As such, they are advised by Brontë’s lawyer for Georges to move into the apartment until their final hearing with immigration services, during which time they have to get to know each other to convince immigration services that their marriage truly is one not based on convenience. Spending time together may be difficult for both Georges but most specifically Brontë as they try to hide the fact of their marriage from her friends and family, including her parents with their own idiosyncrasies, and her current boyfriend Phil with who she works, which means keeping them away from the apartment, the building managers who know her only as Mrs. Fauré and not Miss Parrish. But the biggest issue may be overcoming their fundamental differences as humans, they as roommates who may deep in their heart want to kill the other more than what they want out of the marriage. They may find that the ultimate end prize is not what would happen after a successful meeting with the immigration representatives.
