The Oscar and BAFTA-nominated film tells the powerful, turbulent story of one of Ireland's most controversial patriots and revolutionary heroes, Michael Collins, who leads his countrymen in their fight for independence.

Set in the early 20th Century, when a monumental history of oppression and bloodshed had divided Ireland and its people, the film covers the bloody 1916 Easter Uprising, when Irish revolutionaries surrendered to the overwhelming military power of the British forces and Collins was arrested.
