In an effort to remain neutral, Ireland made a deal to intern any soldier, German or Allied, captured on Irish soil. During a dogfight, Allied pilot Miles Keogh (Bill Campbell) and German pilot Rudolph von Stegenbek (Angus MacFadyen) shoot each other down and are captured. The camp commandant (Gabriel Byrne) tries to keep the peace between these sworn enemies. But, when both men fall in love with Mattie (Jean Butler), a fiery Irish beauty, their hatred becomes personal. Now, these soldiers must fight each other on two battlefields - love and war.
