Irish actors Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (The Infiltrator, Peaky Blinders), Martin McCann (The Survivalist, '71) and Barry Ward (Jimmy's Hall) star in this nail-biting prison-break thriller about the true story of how 38 IRA prisoners managed to burst out of a high-security prison in Northern Ireland. The event, which took place in 1983, is still regarded as "the biggest escape in British history."

Check out the trailer for "Maze," which comes from writer-director Stephen Burke and co-stars Eileen Walsh (Catastrophe, The Magdalene Sisters) and Aaron Monaghan (Assassin's Creed).

"Maze" will be released in Ireland on September 22. As of yet, there's no official U.S. release date.

Based on the true story of the 1983 mass breakout of 38 IRA prisoners from HMP Maze high-security prison in Northern Ireland. As Larry Marley (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), the chief architect of the escape, schemes his way towards pulling off this feat, he comes into contact with prison warder, Gordon Close (Barry Ward). Initially Larry and Gordon are confirmed enemies, born on opposite sides of Northern Ireland’s political divide, but when Larry realises that Gordon may be unwittingly useful for his escape plan, a slow seduction begins. Larry intends to use and manipulate Gordon in order to get closer to his goal but what follows is a tense, and intriguing drama in which an unlikely relationship is forged between two enemies that will have far reaching consequences for both of them.
