In 1961, the UN sends an Irish peacekeeper troop commanded by Commandant Pat Quinlan to Katanga, in Congo, to protect the inhabitants of the mining town of Jadotville in the beginning of a civil war.

Soon there is a reprisal from the mercenaries and Quinlan and his men are left under siege by a huge number of Katangese and mercenary troops. Will the Irish soldiers resist the attack?

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Conor Quinlan, who plays P.J. in the movie, is the real-life grandson of Commandant Pat Quinlan, one of the main heroic characters in the movie. Conor (as P.J.) gets to utter the line, "Quinlan doesn't know what he's doing. He's going to get us killed." See more »
Goofs When Commandant Quinlan is shot in the shoulder, the soldier who shot him is firing an M1898 Mauser. This rifle is chambered for the powerful 7x57mm cartridge which would have punched right through Quinlan at the implied range of 150-250 yards. Further, when the round is removed from Quinlan's shoulder and dropped in the dish, it is clearly not a 7x57mm round. In fact, it doesn't look like a rifle round at all...it looks like a larger caliber pistol round. See more »
