Plot – In 1916, during the revolt known as the Easter Rising, Irish revolutionaries surrendered to the overwhelming military power of the British Army after six days of resistance from their headquarters of the Post Office in Dublin. Among the revolutionary leaders, only the American citizen Eamon de Valera is spared from the firing squad. Many followers, including Michael Collins and his close friend Harry Boland, end up in prison. Once released, the two find themselves being the new leaders of the Irish independence movement. Collins throws himself headlong into the political and military struggle against British rule, traveling the country and making converts with his highly effective speeches and with his magnetic personality. After a violent confrontation with the Royal Irish police, his injuries are treated by Kitty Kiernan, a young woman whose beauty and independence grabs the attention of both Collins and Boland. Collins organizes a secret fearless force - the Irish Volunteers - which launches attacks out of nowhere against the British army and the British police.
