Irish Premiere

In a world torn by conflict, in a place where the idea of peace has been abandoned, an energy of determined optimism emerges.
When someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world, who will stand with them?

Disturbing the Peace is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a narrative that no longer serves us, and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities.  Disturbing the Peace reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to non-violent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace.
