Ireland in 1847, a hardened Irish Ranger fighting for the British Army abandons his post to return to his family. Despite the horrors he has witnessed at war, nothing prepares him for the vision of his homeland in the grip of the Great Famine that has ravaged the country and brutalized his family.

What he sees sets him on a destructive path of vengeance, working his way through the political and social hierarchy of 19th Century Ireland. An epic revenge drama with Hugo Weaving and Barry Keoghan.
