1932. Jimmy Gralton is back home in the Irish countryside after ten years of forced exile in the USA. His widowed mother, his friends and all the young people who enjoy dancing and singing, are happy. Which is not the case of Father Sheridan, the local priest, the village squire and the chief of the fascists. The reason is simple: Jimmy is a socialist activist. So when the "intruder" reopens the village hall they take a dim view of the whole thing. From that moment on they will use every means possible to get rid of Jimmy and his "dangerous" hall.
