Synopsis

Overeager Thomas Crimmin joins the ranks of wardens at a decaying Dublin prison, where the only break from the monotony is the execution of death row inmates, or 'quare fellows,' by hanging. Crimmin is a staunch believer in capital punishment, but the reasoning of senior guard Regan causes him to doubt his convictions. When Crimmin falls into an adulterous affair with Kathleen, wife of a death-row inmate, matters become far more complicated.
