Mexico, 1835; where two English expats find themselves on opposite sides of a revolution. Genteel English painter Charlotte Vernon, mistress of an officer in the Mexican army, determines to prove her worth by chronicling the campaign to suppress Texan rebels. Shoemaker Harry Birchfield joins the rebellion in a bid to get rich. Their ambitions collide as the rebels make a suicide stand at the Alamo. But when it comes to immigrants and martyrdom, things don’t always go according to plan, and the winner doesn’t always settle history.
