Set in Ireland in 1936 during the Celtic harvest festival, this powerful, intimate portrait of a country and a family at a crossroads is the tale of the proud Mundy sisters, as they try to survive in a world where they are limited by gender roles and the Catholic Church; where shifts in the economy, and financial insecurities showcase the realities of life at this time. Told through the memory of their nephew Michael, we see the five Mundy sisters bravely struggle through each day, finding joy in song and dance before their lives are changed forever.
