June 1939. Francis Dempsey and his shell-shocked brother Michael are on an ocean liner from Ireland bound for their brother Martin’s home in New York City, having stolen a small fortune from the IRA. Soon all three brothers are caught up in a whirlwind week of love, blackmail, and betrayal culminating in an assassination plot.
