Robert Catesby (Harrington) is a committed Catholic in Protestant England, where Catholics are persecuted relentlessly. The authorities, directed by King James’ spymaster in Chief Robert Cecil (Mark Gatiss), execute priests and target lay Catholics. Despite the peaceful protestations of head Jesuit Father Garnet (Peter Mullan), Catesby, unable to stand by, recruits friends and family to his audacious – and now infamous – plan.
