Fortune-hunting Irishman Barry Lyndon lusts after his beautiful cousin, Nora, but her fancy is taken instead with Captain Quin. Falling victim to a con, Barry learns to fend for himself with the help of various colourful characters including a dandy highwayman, who harden his heart and transform him into a cynical and merciless manipulator of people. A vulnerable and wealthy widow falls victim to Barry’s charms, providing the chancer with the necessary funds to establish a sure footing in society.
