Justice


Explanation:
I'm beginning to form a picture...I wonder what the movie was about???

If it was related to Northern Ireland and its problems, these men may have been nationalists, who are demanding, in this way, truth and justice for the nationalists in NI.

They could well have been another kind of Irish or NI man, however.
