It's 1776 and Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) is a hero of the French and Indian War, guilt-driven by some of his 'heroic' acts. Now a widower farmer in South Carolina with seven children, Martin is trying to avoid the war of Independence against the English, but his children, especially the eldest boy, Gabriel (Heath Ledger), smolder with ideology, keen to fight for freedom from the Redcoats, who represent a distant King trampling the rights of the new world's battlers. Only when his family is in the direct line of fire does Martin follow Gabriel into vengeful battle, seeking revenge for the barbarity of Colonel Tavington (Jason Isaacs). An exemplary soldier and tactician, Martin helps the new nation defeat the English, led by Lord General Cornwallis (Tom Wilkinson). But of course, it all comes at a high price.
