Full Episode Summary

The miniseries opens with a funeral procession in rural County Galway Ireland, which is rudely interrupted by a group of British residents on a fox hunt. Rachel Clement, the daughter of the British landlord for what was once O'Manion property in County Galway, arrives to live at her father's estate and finds that her brother David is also in the area, stationed there as part of a British regiment. Rachel meets and takes an interest in Rory O'Manion, a local Irish rebel, and convinces her father to hire him. Concurrently, David has a disastrous run-in with Rory's sister Deidre, where the result leads to an eventual courtship. But much to Rachel's consternation, the funeral outrage coupled with the death of his mother during childbirth, a growing agricultural disaster affecting the potato crop, and his involvement in an armed uprising against the British occupiers, forces Rory, now a fugitive, to leave his beloved home in search of a new beginning in the bustling river port city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the 1840s United States.moreless
