Film details

It’s 1847 and Ireland is in the grip of the Great Famine. Feeney, a hardened Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army, abandons his post to return home and is horrified at the hopeless destruction that has brutalised his people. With little else to live for, he sets a destructive path to avenge his family.
