Sean Connery stars as Jack Kehoe, leader of a militant workers group, in this account of the Irish-American coal miners' struggle against the exploitative working practices of their bosses. Kehoe's men - the Molly Maguires - are unafraid of using violence and intimidation to achieve their ends, and they pose enough threat to the bosses that the latter respond by sending undercover detective James McParlan (Richard Harris) to infiltrate their organisation. However, McParlan is a working class Irish immigrant himself and he soon begins to question where his true allegiances lie.
