Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Two Irish insurgents are assigned the task of guarding a pair of captured British soldiers in this dramatic adaptation of Frank O' Connor's prizewinning story starring Frank Converse, Estelle Parsons, and Nesbitt Blaisdell. As the foursome attempt to maintain peaceful relations in the farmhouse of a lively widow, the prospect of reprisals for any harm that comes to the captive soldiers looms large on the conscience of their Irish captor Barney Callahan (Converse) during pleasant nights of dancing, card games, and amiable debates about their respective religions and countries.
