Brendan Malone is a member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB). His dream is to see Ireland free of British rule. And needless to say, he hates the British with all his heart and soul. Brendan sends his two sons to the prestigious University College Dublin and, upon their graduation, expects them to follow in his footsteps to fight against the British. Dylan, the eldest son, only thinks of drinking and women. When his father pushes him to take the Oath of the IRB, he willingly complies. The same cannot be said of his younger brother, Hugh.
