Overview

It is the time of the 'Troubles' (1921). An elderly Jew is trying to learn essential phrases in Gaelic. A young man breaks in seeking shelter from the Black-and-Tans. The Jew feeds and shelters him, finally dressing him unwillingly as a Jew to escape the Black-and-Tans. The man is saved and has learned a little of the character and philosophy of the Jews.
