This is the first feature-length film about St. Patrick and all of his efforts towards liberating Ireland. Growing up as the son of a wealthy and noble family, young Patrick was kidnapped by Irish raiders and saw firsthand the land and its people. After being ransomed back home, Patrick was unable to forget the land and went back on a one-man crusade to bring peace and justice to the island nation, ridding it of snakes as he went on his merry way.
