Shortly after the First World War, an informer's body is found on the estate of the Quintons, a wealthy Irish family. The British Black and Tans, led by a zealous sergeant, fire the family home, and only young Willie and his mother Evie escape alive.
Fatherless, Willie grows into manhood while his bitter, alcoholic mother's resentment festers. But though Willie finds love with Marianne, he seems unable to forget the injuries of the past. Can he ever escape this terrible cycle of violence?
