Summary
Disillusioned by his experience in Vietnam, an Irish-American moves to Ireland and joins the IRA. Craig Wasson stars as Michael Flaherty, a young man looking for something to believe in after his time in Vietnam. An American by birth, Michael grow up hearing tales from his Irish grandfather about Ireland. Inspired by the Irish Republican Army's cause of an unified Ireland free from British rule, Michael volunteers to be a member. He's a stranger in a strange world, an American in Ireland fighting for the IRA. Michael is an enthusiastic true believer in their cause. Most of the Irish view him with suspicion and mistrust him as an American. When it becomes politically expedient for them, the IRA's leadership decides they can use Michael's status as an American in Belfast for their own gain. A powder keg fraught with peril in Northern Ireland, he's welcomed into the local IRA group. What Michael doesn't know is that he's a mere pawn. His life is meaningless to them as a naive American
