In 1920s Ireland, "Black And Tan" squads from Britain go on the rampage, hunting down and crushing the volunteer guerrilla armies, which have formed to spearhead the country's bid for independence. Young doctor Damien witnesses the murder of a local boy at the hands of the Tans, and vows to take a stand. He takes the oath of the Irish Republican Army and joins his inspirational older brother Teddy in the long and violent struggle for freedom. When the British and the Irish agree a peace treaty to end the bloodshed, the siblings unexpectedly find themselves on opposite sides.
