A young boy is kidnapped and forced into slavery, guarding sheep in Ireland. With his faith in God, he returns home only to decide to study to become a priest and introduce Christianity to the poor and enslaved people of Ireland. His deeds led him to becoming the second Bishop of Ireland. Very informative look at this fifth century personage. His reported use of the shamrock as an illustration of the Holy Trinity led to its being regarded as the Irish national symbol.
A very talented cast featuring Patrick Bergin as the adult Patrick and Luke Griffin as the young Patrick. Malcolm McDowell, Alan Bates and Susannah York seemed flawless.
