Jack Taylor: The Magdalen Martyrs (2011)
1h 30min · Crime · 10 April 2011
Galway Private Investigator JACK TAYLOR is hired by the daughter of a former inmate of the infamous Magdalen Laundries to find the identity of a former nun, known only as LUCIFER, who was notorious for taking pleasure in torturing the girls. Jack has hardly begun his inquiries when he is warned off by local hard man BILL CASSELL. He also uncovers a seeming cover up when files which might have revealed the nun's identity are missing from Church Recored. The case grows more complicated when Jack discovers a connection between the execution style murders of two young men and the nun, Lucifer. Apparently someone is out to avenge themselves on Lucifer by killing those she holds dearest: Her nephews. What seemed like a simple case turns even more complicated for Jack when he accidentally causes the death of Bill Cassell's henchman. Now, not only are the Guards after Jack for his involvement in the henchman's death, but Bill wants a piece of him as well. It's a race against time for Jack to stop the third murder from happening, while at the same time the inevitable showdown with Bill grows ever nearer.
