Movie Info

First romance amidst the timeless beauty of Ireland provides the basis of this tender drama. The story is set in modern times within the County Cavan and centers on Danny, the 18-year-old son of a recently widowed policeman. The story begins soon after the funeral. Father and son are having a row about household responsibilities; the angry Danny ends up running away to constant trouble-maker Prunty's farm. Danny is confused about life until he meets the well-born, beautiful Annagh. Time passes and the two begin to slowly get acquainted. As they do, the previously taciturn Danny begins to show his softer side and one night, deep in a forest glen, the two tenderly become lovers. Unfortunately, Annagh is impregnated and real trouble between the families ensues. Meanwhile Prunty keeps on making trouble; at first it is innocent, but as time passes it becomes more serious.
