At a lonely dance hall on the Irish border, Danny , a young saxaphone player, sees his band manager and a young innocent girl shot down in cold blood by masked gunmen. Although shattered by this traumatic experience, Danny refuses to let it lie and embarks on a nightmare journey of revenge. Like a Jacobean tragedy, the closer Danny comes to the heart of evil, the more tainted he becomes by the very evil he is trying to eradicate.

In a remote part of Ireland Peter Plunkett sits in his crumbling ancestral mansion. He can't make the mortgage payments, but he doesn't want to let it go. Making a virtue of necessity, he declares that the castle is haunted: each mildewed room, each cobweb will now become a tourist attraction. The arrival of a group of American tourists unleashes a series of extraordinary events, culminating in a miraculous encounter on All-Hallow's Eve.

In Ireland, where national pride is a passion akin to religion and romantic love, Michael Collins became a legend for his fierce devotion to his land and its independence. The Irish patriot's bravery and unswerving dedication to his nation changed history as it made him into a legend.

His struggle, like the epic history of Ireland itself, would encompass romance and voilence, valour and rage, burning hope and fiery tragedy. Collins' quest would bring a man raised on war into an even more dangerous battle for peace. It would cost him his life but would make him a hero for the ages.
