Kilroy shows, as through a prism, episodes in the lives of Brendan Bracken and William Joyce, including their relationship with Ireland and their conceptions of Britain and Germany in World War II. How these antagonists, given a choice by history, distorted their personalities to re-invent themselves becomes a spellbinding examination of the riddle of nationalism.
