During World War II, more than 300,000 American military personal passed through or were based in Northern Ireland. On June 1, 1944, ten of these young American servicemen died when their B-17 bomber lost its bearings in heavy fog and crashed into Belfast's Cave Hill. Over fifty years later, a news item about a discovery at the crash site of one airman's wedding ring struck a chord in writer Peter Woodward, son of the actor Edward Woodward, inspiring him to write Closing the Ring. Richard Attenborough calls it 'unequivocally one of the most exciting, most original, most authentic first screenplays I've ever read.'
