The construction of the RMS Titanic offers a glimmer of hope to the downtrodden masses of Ireland in this historical mini-series starring Chris Noth, Kevin Zegers, and Neve Campbell. Belfast, Ireland: 1909. As construction on the Titanic gets under way in the Harland and Wolff shipyard, the investors behind the project see their ambitious endeavor starting to take shape. Meanwhile, the middle class project managers strive to get the details right, and the lower-class workers labor tirelessly to ensure that the ship will be finished in three years. All the while, Britain maintains its rule over Ireland, and the conflict between the Catholics and Protestants reaches a boiling point.
