Mastermind criminal . . . family man . . . legendary folk hero. This true story reveals the man behind the growing myth: notorious Irish gangster Martin Cahill, known to many as The General.
Stealing food as a boy to survive poverty in a Dublin slum, Martin Cahill (Brendan Gleeson--Braveheart) turns to a life of crime that follows him until his violent death at the hands of an assassin. During Cahill's 20-year criminal reign, he steals fortunes through intimidation, brutality and meticulous planning. Living by his own rules, Cahill brazenly fathers children with both his wife and her sister. Despite being Ireland's most wanted man, he cleverly constructs airtight alibis and eludes capture. Yet Inspector Ned Kenny (Oscar winner Jon Voight--Coming Home, Rosewood), determined to bring Cahill down, relentlessly pursues the cunning ringleader and his gang.
Based on the book by Paul Williams.
