Their mother is dead and father, Murdo, has a heart condition. The war takes its toll on them as the men become soldiers and the women nurses. Andrew is in Ireland and involved in the 1916 Easter uprising. When his girlfriend and her family are killed by an Irish militant, he kills the man and his family, as well as six others.
