Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson), a former hero of the French and Indian War haunted by horrific memories of battle, is drawn into the American Revolutionary War when the brutal British Colonel Tavington (Jason Issacs) guns down his son Thomas (Gregory Smith).  Along with his other son, Gabriel (Heath Ledger), Benjamin takes up arms in the South Carolina militia, vowing to protect his family and gain independence from the British.
