Actually, it's a bit more than that. Shannon wants to rebel against her traditional upbringing and run away to America. Joseph wants revenge on her father for taking his land and getting rich while his family starves. A little HilarityEnsues and Shannon drags Joseph with her as her servant boy. However, the tables are soon turned as Joseph must teach Shannon what real life and work involve, especially for Irish immigrants in Boston. Eventually the two fall in love and plan to run away together to the west.
