The scene is Ireland during the First World War. A married Irish woman falls in love with an officer from the British garrison guarding the town. The Irish resent their country's long occupation by the British and are sympathetic to the Germans. Irish rebels try to use the town as the location to land a shipment of German arms. They are betrayed and the woman is assumed to be the culprit.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Ryan's Daughter will help teachers and parents use the film to supplement courses on the history of the First World War, Britain and Ireland. The Learning Guide will help expand upon the issues of British/Irish relations during the First World War, post traumatic stress syndrome, and the viciousness that can infect small, isolated, impoverished towns. The film and the Learning Guide raise issues of where obligations of loyalty begin and end, the need for compassion, and the dangers of mob rule.

The brutal British occupation of Ireland lasted for hundreds of years. Ryan's Daughter shows some of the results of the hatred that it engendered and gives a vivid picture of the dismal life lived by most of the Irish during the First World War. The film is also a tale of star-crossed love and betrayal.
