An Irish-American joins the Irish Republican Army during the Troubles. Disillusioned by his nation's apathy toward war and revolution, Vietnam veteran Michael Flaherty leaves Detroit for Belfast. Initially inspired by his Irish brothers, Flaherty awakens to violence, terror, and horror of war and realizes how he serves a political propaganda purpose for theĀ IRA.
