The assassination of Lord Lifford, a tyrannical British landlord, along a country road in Donegal in 1878 remains one of Ireland’s great unsolved mysteries… Nearly a century later during the height of The Troubles, in a rural pub on the border of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, Mary Friel, a barmaid, strives to maintain harmony amongst the men in her life. When her secret British lover unexpectedly arrives he is interrupted by another stranger, an American cousin looking for insight into his family history. Ancestral legends are revisited and a cycle of violence is revealed.   Can they overcome their history, or will the cycle continue?
