One of the most significant films ever made about the Troubles in Ireland, Ourselves Alone is a powerful story of love and conflicting loyalties set against the battle for Ireland's independence. It is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements.

Co-directed by Belfast-born Brian Desmond Hurst – one of the twentieth century's most prolific and acclaimed directors – Ourselves Alone (a translation of 'Sinn Fein') was banned in Northern Ireland on its release in 1936, but with sympathetic performances from a strong cast the focus remains firmly on the human cost of conflict in uncertain times.

1921: as nationalists battle with the Royal Irish Constabulary and British Black and Tans, a young girl finds herself under terrible pressures; she is torn between loyalty to her brother, unbeknownst to her an IRA leader, her fiance, a police inspector, and his comrade and rival in love, a British Army captain...
