It is 1917 and Pidgie is persuaded to join the women's branch of the republican movement, Cumman na Mban.
Pidgie is asked to become housekeeper and guard to Michael Collins, currently lodging in Mespil Road, Dublin, under the name of O'Brien.
After the raid on Mespil Road, Pidgie cannot go back there.
She returns to her aunt's house in Clontarf, where she waits for the knock on the door.
Arrested after the raid on her aunt's house in Clontarf, Pidgie is taken to the notorious Dublin Castle for interrogation.
A truce at last, but will it bring peace? And what will Pidgie do now the war is over?
