About this show

This wrenching look at perhaps Ireland's bleakest era opens in 1846 in the village of Glanconnor, County Mayo, where the second crop of potatoes has failed and the community faces the very real prospect of starvation. John Connor, head of the family, leader of the village, son of glorious forefathers, will do the right thing by his family, by God--and moreover by himself.
