This is the first ever feature film depicting the life of the world-famous Irish hero. Armed with only courage and conviction, Patrick's unwavering belief that good conquers evil would liberate Ireland and alter the course of history. Patrick Bergin, Malcolm McDowell, Alan Bates, and Susannah York star in this lush production filmed on location in Ireland. Patrick is born in Britain, the privileged son of nobility. At the age of 16, he is kidnapped by Irish raiders and enslaved by a cruel druid chieftain. Six years later, following many vivid dreams and visions of destiny, Patrick escapes and returns home to England and a sheltered life with his loving parents Concessa and Calpornius. Troubled by new visions of the Irish people pleading to be freed from enslavement and hardship, he returns to the turbulent country intent on liberating the nation. His mission is jeopardized by British Bishop Quentin, who believes the Irish are warlike heathens, but his unwavering courage in the face of adversity utlimately forces Ireland to abruptly turn in a direction that changed history forever. 90 minutes.

Beyond being the patron saint of Ireland (and having chased some nonexistent snakes from the Emerald Isle), relatively little is known about Saint Patrick. Still, Patrick left behind a unique document known as his Confession, which tells us more about the life and beliefs of this popular saint. This autobiography, originally written in the fifth century is a fascinating work that delves into the life of this intriguing man and his testament of faith.

In this new translation from internationally acclaimed translator John Skinner, the character and world of St. Patrick are brought vividly to life. In addition, this volume contains the only known document apart from his Confession to have been written by Patrick. In a letter he wrote to the soldiers of Coroticus (also Christians), Patrick demonstrates his passion for justice by reprimanding the infantry for raiding parts of Ireland in order to sell captives into slavery. In an irate tone, Patrick scorns his fellow Christians for such dreadful deeds, and his resultant writing is every bit as revealing as his Confession.
