Abstract

An Irish Republican Army soldier on a mission is captured by the British during the Irish War of Independence. Filmed to celebrate Easter Rising, marking Irish resistance 10 years before, and banned in the UK, this silent film was thought long lost. Rediscovered and restored by the Irish Film Institute at the Library of Congress in 1991.
