Set in the late 18th century in a small Irish village, this films chronicles the gradual demise of almost everyone in the village due to a constant state of war. The attrition begins as the village elder and a priest keep demanding that some of the men to go to battle in defense of the village -- and the outsider who has come in as an observer sees these men return wounded, and dying. As this continues, only the outsider and a handicapped man are left, along with a woman who pairs off with the latter. Next, invading soldiers come into town and there seems to be no escape -- a late 18th-century message for a late 20th-century audience all-too-familiar with fighting themselves.
