A teenager from Belfast finds himself caught between IRA and Loyalist battles in this drama. 17-year old Benny, a delinquent, favors neither side of the Irish conflict. He finds refuge in a rural school near the southern Irish border. The school is headed by a woman who set it up as a neutral outpost for young people. She is assisted by a former priest who is also her sometime lover. She finds herself sexually attracted to Benny. Problems ensue when the janitor, a stoolie for the local cops, is murdered. Benny gets tarred and feathered by the IRA and the British Army and the Loyalists are out to destroy the headmistress and the ex-priest.
