The Quiet Man tells the story of an Irish-American Prizefighter, who after killing an opponent in the ring, returns to Ireland in search of the quiet life. After buying back his ancestral home, he falls out with the local Squire and falls in love with the Squire's sister, which leads to the longest fist fight in cinematic history - far from the quiet life he envisioned!
