Snobbery is a sin in Ireland--at least that is how it seems. Putting on heirs is not tolerated even in the rich. In this film we see life in a rural Irish village through the eyes of its children. Two groups, one well off, the other not so, fight it out to see who is best. The class distinction between the children is obvious, but perhaps there is deeper meaning. The clash begins with nothing more than one-upmanship, but ends in violence and destruction. This is a remake of the French film La Guerre des boutons, 1962. So much for the anti-snob theory.
