Synopsis

Crime drama about Irish gangster Martin Cahill (Brendan Gleeson) who became known as 'The General' after co-ordinating a series of armed robberies in Dublin during the 1980s. Hailed in some quarters as a folk-hero for his defiance against the authorities, Martin pulls one job too many when he steals paintings belonging to the Beit collection. With the police, headed by Ned Kenny (Jon Voight), closing in, Cahill's problems are multiplied by the increasing interest of the IRA in his activities.
