Plot Summary
Three stories make up this examination of Irish life. In "The Majesty of the Law," an inspector (Cyril Cusack) receives orders to arrest Dan O'Flaherty (Noel Purcell) for assault, and Dan's Irish morals get in the way of his freedom. "A Minute's Wait" is a comedic look at Irish passengers patiently waiting for a train to depart while an elderly British couple complain. In "1921," an Irish nationalist escapes his execution, and a police sergeant questions where his own loyalties lie.
