    A comedy in which Mulvenna, an Ulster student recently turned fugitive, goes to Bull Moose City, Idaho.

He, a Protestant who has spent years living in Idaho, takes this son of his former Catholic neighbour under his wing. The two team up with various other compatriots to win through a tough situation.
