James Frecheville plays a returning soldier during the Irish Potato Famine of 1847, who returns home to a violent country (just as bad as the war), where people are killing each other to survive and the rich making sure they have all the food, like they do now. When he gets home, he finds out his family has been killed by the rich and even some of the townspeople were part of the murders, because his family had a few pigs that everybody wanted to eat. So a lot of townspeople turned their eyes while his family was slaughtered for a few pigs. He seeks revenge and becomes the country's #1 most-wanted criminal. It's a well-acted Irish cowboy film, that far surpasses many American westerns because of its realism; Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent, Moe Dunford.
