One Upon a Time in Ireland

Once Upon A Time In Ireland

Set in 1922 Civil War Ireland a band of Republican IRA idealists are under siege in a tidal cave carved into the beautiful, rugged wildness of the Irish Atlantic coast. Outside awaits a bloodthirsty force of anti IRA/pro treaty British supported troops. As the day fades into night both sides talk about the future of the nation from their point of view and as the tide rises one group debates their chances of survival while the other group their determination to wipe the Republicans out. Shot in black and white the slow burning film builds with tension and fear as the fate of all the men is played out with more than a tinge of sadness for a united country that never came to be.
