Having grown up within the Irish Republican Army (I.R.A.) since he was young, Bobby O'Brien feels that the modern day I.R.A. does not have any of it's weapons strength and protection power anymore. He is surprised when he realizes that many of his mates don't want to fight anymore, they just want to live normally. This fact infuriates Bobby as he sets out on a path and a goal to continue in the fashion of a continuity I.R.A. man. When his best mate Mick gets murdered by the son of a very powerful member of the Ulster Defense Association (U.D.A.), a loyalist paramilitary group, Bobby loses his cool and murders the young man in an act of revenge. Bobby now is not only on the run from the I.R.A. but the U.D.A. and the British Intelligence Agency as well. The only person who can stop Bobby from his last assassination-attempt on a military intelligence agent is his lover from the past, Maggie. In this never-ending suspenseful and action-packed thriller, Bobby learns the lesson of a lifetime.
