Based on Frank O'Connor's 1931 short story about the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921). Irish insurgents guard their British prisoners-of-war in a remote farmstead. Gradually the opposing soldiers come to respect, even like each other. The enemy becomes human. This greatly worries the Irish leader, because his prisoners may have to be killed in reprisal if the British execute two IRA soldiers as they threaten.
