A story set in a small village of Cafgarven in Ireland. It is a beautiful summer in the year of 1920. The country is in political turmoil because of a strong and growing desire for Independence from Great Britain. The Fenian Flying columns are attacking the local constabulary and now reserves have been brought in from Britain to support the Royal Irish Constabulary.
Cafgarven is caught up in the horrendous tit-for-tat war of murder. The little village finds itself caught in the crossfire and the local priest - Father John finds God's work cut out for him in the most bizarre way. He must help a person from either side of the conflict.
