Slovenski opis filma:

Vojna drama, posneta po resničnih dogodkih, se osredotoča na ameriško-mehiško vojno med letoma 1846 in 1848. Zgodba pripoveduje o bataljonu sv. Patricka, znanem tudi kot »Los San Patricios«, ki so ga sestavljali predvsem irski priseljenci. Potem ko so se mladi požrtvovalni vojaki pod vodstvom poveljnika Johna Rileyja odcepili od ameriške vojske, so postali slavni zaradi svojega poguma in učinkovite bojne strategije, s katero so priborili zmago Mehiki.

Originalni opis filma:

"One Man's Hero" tells the little-known story of the "St. Patrick's Battalion" or "San Patricios," a group of mostly Irish, and other immigrants of the Catholic religion, who deserted to Mexico after encountering religious and ethnic prejudice in the U.S. Army during the Mexican-American War. The plot centers around the personal story of John Riley, an Irishman who had been a Sergeant in the American Army, who is commissioned as a Captain in the Mexican Army, and commands the battalion, as he leads his men in battle, and struggles with authorities on both sides of the border.
