A bleak and beautiful story, told through the folk music of Ireland and America.
1865 – The end of the US Civil War. Eliza Duane Mooney, daughter of an Irish emigrant, walks across America in search of her brother Jeddo, a child soldier in the Confederate army. As Eliza and Jeddo’s stories unfold, they shine a light on the stark realities of war, its invisible rise, and what is left in its wake.
