Unknown to most, modern-day Belfast remains a divided city. Forty kilometres of a physical wall, up to ten meters high in some locations separates two religious communities living side by side. For more than thirty years, the controversial time is known as "The Troubles" has had a powerful impact on the city and its residents. Very few people, if any, were unaffected by the violence that plagued the area and everyone has a story to tell.
