A rich and compelling drama tracing the tragic events of the mutiny in India in 1920 of The Connaught Rangers, the 88th of the line in which 88 mutineers were brought to trial. Seen through the eyes of Private James Daly, we see unfolding a complex story of passion and nationalist feelings amongst the Irish serving in India, which ultimately leads to the sentencing and execution of Private Daly. 
Based on actual events and characters ‘the 88’ gives a stark and vivid depiction of conditions and feelings of the period, it remains utterly absorbing and leaves us forever wondering about Private Daly, and the last peacetime execution of a man serving in the British Army.
