1921. Jimmy Gralton builds a dance hall on a rural crossroads in Ireland on the brink of Civil War. A place where young people come to learn, argue, dream, dance. As the Pearse-Connolly Hall grows in popularity, its socialist, free-spirited reputation attracts the attention of the church and politicians, forcing Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. At the height of the Depression a decade later, Jimmy returns to his home where the dancehall stands abandoned. The activist within him is stirred as Jimmy witnesses the growing poverty and cultural oppression.

Remarkably, there has never been a theatrical documentary about the early days of woman’s liberation, until now! Resurrecting the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant woman who founded the modern woman’s movement from 1966 to 1971, the film takes us from the founding of NOW to the emergence of more radical factions. From intellectuals to the street theatrics of WITCH (Woman’s International Conspiracy from Hell) She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry dramatizes woman’s liberation in its exhilarating, quarrelsome, sometimes heart-wrenching glory.
