Robert Mountbellew, an English nobleman, returns to his Irish estate in the west of
Ireland in the summer of 1843 to spend a summer hunting and to gain closure to a
dysfunctional relationship with his now deceased father.
Mountbellew feels displaced, neither belonging to the upper or lower classes. Robert should be choosing a wife, but the life of an upper class English gent seems stifling
and unrewarding to him.
Robert’s desire to belong leads him into Irish politics of the 1800’s, and a love affair that his own class disapproves of. The summer of 1843 would liberate and confine Robert Mountbellew.
