This British historical drama chronicles the failed Jacobite rebellion in Scotland which ended with a bloody battle at Culloden in the 18th century. The Jacobites were a pro-Catholic group who followed King James II. Thirty years after their first battle in which they were routed, the Jacobites rallied around Bonnie Prince Charlie as he attempted to reclaim the English throne. Charlie and the Jacobites made their stand on Culloden Moor, near Inverness in 1746. Because the promised French troops never arrived, they were slaughtered by the English red-coats. The film presents the stories of people involved in both sides of the conflict.
