Synopsis: It is 1921, and young Ben Sheridan’s Irish-American father mysteriously dies in their small Rhode Island town. Determined to learn the truth about his family’s cloudy past, he sets sail for Ireland, and quickly becomes involved in a struggle between soldiers of the newly formed Irish Republican Army and the brutal British troops. Amidst the lush and rugged Irish countryside, and the horrible violence unfolding across it, Ben must search for the truth of his identity, and the ties of his family’s blood.
