"You can't go home!" or can you? When someone returns to their native land after a long absence things are bound to have changed. Or rather the person changes, adopting a new culture, and the old country stays the same. This film shows the clash between Irish-American and Irish cultures. Director John Ford (originally Sean O'Feeney) has the two factions fight it out, literally, in the longest brawl ever filmed. Only after finding common ground through boxing do the two sides see eye to eye.
