“Most wars last years…This one has to be over by dinner.” The rival gangs of young Irish children from the neighboring villages of Ballydowse & Carrickdowse engage in escalating battles in which they cut off the buttons, shoe-laces, belts and braces of their captured opponents. These ructions result in the usual problems with parents and schoolmasters ultimately leading the leaders of the two groups to develop a grudging admiration of the other and an estranged friendship.
