A story of faith, devotion and the fight for freedom.

"Beautifully photographed" (Boxoffice), this "intriguing film" (The Hollywood Reporter) tells the powerful true tale of the Saint Patrick Battalion, a group of soldiers enlisted from Ireland to fight a brutal war between the U.S. and Mexico. Solid performances from Tom Berenger (Platoon), Joaquim De Almeida (Clear and Present Danger) and Patrick Bergin (Sl--ping with the Enemy), drive home this film's universal story about standing up for one's beliefs in the face of adversity.

When a small group of Irish soldiers - fighting for the U.S. during the Mexican-American War - are treated harshly for their religious convictions, fellow compatriot and career soldier Sergeant John Riley (Berenger) takes up their cause and leads them in a desperate escape across the border into the enemy territory of Mexico. Now, they must convince a Mexican rebel leader (De Almeida) to let them fight against the U.S. so they can protect their beliefs...and save their own lives from the punishment for treason!
