It is the autumn of 1913, and Dublin is caught up in a full blown class war. A war that Audeon Kelly thought he would fight to the bitter end. But his young daughter sickens and starves. Tensions creep into his marriage. Violence breaks out on the streets. Difficult decisions have to be made. What will the consequences be – for Audeon, his marriage, his daughter’s life, for Ireland?
Your politics or your family. Your morals or your survival.
