Wales had long been a stronghold of Catholicism but with the Protestant Revolution in the 16th Century heresy was imposed upon the Welsh nation by the English bureaucracy. It was the Welsh Bards that helped to keep the true teachings of the Faith alive through their poems and songs. Welsh Schoolmaster Richard Gwyn fell in love with the history and folklore of his country of Wales and through his reading, writing and studies he converted to the Catholic Faith. His wit, humour, joy and intelligence make his story one of real human experience, easily related to despite a gap of 450 years between his life and ours. He was a family man who was a devoted husband and father. His love for God and his honesty inevitably led him to confront the evils of his time whereupon he cheerfully gave his life for the Catholic Faith at the gallows in the market place of Wrexham, Wales. His wonderful biography is presented in this film for the first time. He is one of the 40 Martyrs.
