On the lam from the law and hoping to find shelter on a dark night, Christy Mahon is a self-confessed, cold-blooded murderer
when he stumbles into Michael Flaherty's rural Irish tavern, at the turn of the 20th century. To his surprise, he is embraced by
the colorful citizens of the village, including Flaherty's beautiful daughter, Pegeen, and the lusty Widow Quinn. Infamous for
his dirty deed, he is just riding the crest of his popularity when the past catches with him, exposing the flip side of his fate,
and bringing him face to face with the darkness he had hoped to outrun.
