Film information

Based on: Actual events

Story: War drama, loosely based on a true story. During the Second World War, two enemy pilots (Bill Campbell and Angus Macfayden) are shot down in the skies over Ireland. Both survive their crashes and are shocked to discover that their Irish prisoner of war camp is non-partisan, with all nationalities and ranks being imprisoned together. They are further taken aback when they are told that the easy-going Commandant O'Brien (Gabriel Byrne) will allow them trips to the races and the local pubs, as long as they promise not to escape. Relations between the pilots are already strained, and when a beautiful local girl Mattie (Jean Butler) catches the eye of both men, the simmering resentment threatens to explode into violence. But Mattie has other ideas, and forces both men to confront their hatred and their naive perception of the enemy.
