The year is 1961. In Ireland, things are bleak. The Catholic Church rules the lives of ordinary people. There is no compassion for sins involving sex. Unmarried girls who 'fall' are driven to desperate measures. Everyone knows someone who 'got into trouble' and the consequences. In the sewing factory, the girls try to forget. They laugh, worship Elvis and dream of films, pop music, fashion and happy-ever-after.
A new girl appears in the factory, desperate for a job. Pregnant and alone, the girl hides her condition. She wants to keep her child. A staunch supporter of the "Mother and child" homes where a girl is hidden until she gives birth, the local Priest is adamant that the only possibility is to repent and surrender the child for adoption.
As the women discover that they have a pregnant runaway amongst them, they are forced to take sides.
Will they risk everything to protect the girl, or will they be forced to surrender her to her fate?
