Roger Casement served the British Government, was knighted, turned Irish rebel and was executed all within the space of just ten years. His life and reputation was destroyed by a set of homosexually explicit diaries which many claim are British forgeries. This film tells Casement's extraordinary story and features the only modern forensic investigation of the 'Black Diaries', which was co-funded by Crossing
the Line Films.
