Born in 1880, Sean O'Casey lived through troubled and turbulent times. When he was forty he wrote three plays within a year, Shadow of A Gunman, Juno and The Paycock and The Plough and The Stars.These plays now stand with the great plays of the twentieth century.

Featuring old footage and interviews with O Casey himself, his wife Eileen, his son Breon, his personality comes to life. Actor, John Kavanagh is the voice of John O'Casey, reading from his autobiography and his letters. The film reveals O'Casey as a diverse, gifted and innovative artists who was way ahead of his time in his vision of what drama should be.
