About this Episode

From British director Ken Loach, this story is set in 1920 during the War for Irish Independence, depicting the conflict between Irish militants and occupying British forces, and the internal struggle between the newly formed Irish Free State Army and the IRA.

One side supported a treaty with the British, while the other side would only accept an unconditional departure of all British troops from Ireland.

Two brothers end up on opposing sides of that conflict in this intimate portrayal of the combat and personal strife between these factions.
