As the First World War draws to an end, Petty Office Johann Schettler is embroiled in a mutiny of German sailors. This action turns to revolution as the German people begin to remove the ruling class from power.
Schettler is sent with the interned fleet to Scapa Flow, suffering hardship and turmoil before escaping to Glasgow to reunite with his mother's family. In the midst of the Battle of George Square, Schettler meets the fiery, dynamic Kate A'Herne, a friend of his cousin, and the attraction is immediate.
To escape from the security services, they flee to Kate's home in Ireland. In a short but blissful period, they fall in love. But bliss turns to horror as they endure the brutality of the British Army.
They move to Dublin to help in the struggle for Irish Independence but find they're still being hunted. Can they turn this to their advantage?
