Ireland 1920: workers from field and
country unite to form volunteer guerrilla armies to face the
ruthless "Black and Tan" squads that are being shipped from
Britain to block Ireland's bid for independence.
Driven by a deep sense of duty and a love for his
country, Damien abandons his burgeoning career as a doctor
and joins his brother, Teddy, in a dangerous and violent
fight for freedom. As the freedom fighters’ bold tactics
bring the British to breaking point, both sides finally
agree to a treaty to end the bloodshed. But, despite the
apparent victory, civil war erupts and families, who fought
side by side, find themselves pitted against one another as
sworn enemies, putting their loyalties to the ultimate test.
