The setting takes place in Dublin, the town is silent and dark, all except for the dim light of the moon.
A Republican sniper lay watching, as he strikes a match for a cigarette an enemy starts shooting.
A woman goes to inform an enemy about the sniper's location, but before they could take any action the sniper kills both of them.
As the Sniper fired at the enemies he got shot in his forearm. He starts to dress the wound and quickly take care of it; he then crawls over to the window and fakes his death so the enemy will see and lower his guard.
With his guard lowered the Sniper takes aim and fires at the enemy with his revolver. The enemy was hit. In agony he fell over the building and fell to his death.
As his body lay still, the Sniper comes over to see the face of his opponent; only to discover that this man was not only his enemy but his brother.
