Overview

Ireland, a country dominated for centuries by England, has given the world many fascinating stories. Herein is one of them about love and scandal set against the backdrop of volatile Anglo-Irish politics between 1881 and 1921. It is based on the true story of a man that British officials called a dangerous man and the people of Ireland called their uncrowned king. His countrymen idolized him as he battled to secure home rule for Ireland and fair rents for Irish tenant farmers. At the same time he fought for Ireland in the British Parliament, he carried on a secret love affair with the wife of one of his colleagues in the Irish Party. He loved nothing more than his country, except this woman, whose love he could not do without. He lived with her on the sly for nearly ten years before a scandalous divorce cost him his party leadership and led to his untimely death. He died without achieving home rule for Ireland and without suspecting that the woman he so completely adored would continue his struggle through her son and grandson and ultimately accomplish what he could not. Their story ends in triumph, but also in tragedy.
