Storyline

Based on Frank O' Connor's breathtaking short story, Guests of a Nation takes place during the Irish War of Independence, a blood struggle that set Irish freedom fighters against British military. The film revolves around two Irish soldiers, passionate Bonaparte and naive Noble, who are charged with the task of minding British captives Belcher and Hawkins. Though their countries are at war, inside their secluded farmhouse the four men form an unlikely friendship over religious debates and late-night card games. However, when the time comes for the British soldiers to face punishment for their actions, the Irishmen are torn between showing loyalty to their country and mercy towards their friends. Guests of a Nation is a heart-wrenching film about loyalty, compassion, and the loss of innocence. Written by Anonymous
