Bigotry, demagoguery, economic rivalry and destruction are elements in the ugly nature of prejudice. These elements are all present in Ulster, the Protestant dominated section of Northern Ireland.

The Catholics, in turn, have created a separate culture for themselves which has led to greater differences. Probes the irrational hatred and brutality that results from the lack of understanding between groups and provides a classic example of the pattern of prejudice.
