The unexpected death of her husband sends a woman and her seven children, ages 2-14, into emotional turmoil and financial crisis in 1967 Dublin. She is forced to borrow money from a ruthless loan shark to make ends meet.
Based on the Victorian novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, this film tells the complex story of a sensitive, intelligent, and ambitious man trapped in a society which has no use for him. Despite the obstacle of his Irish birth, Raymond Barry manages to become the wealthy but ill-respected Barry Lyndon.
