Three young Irish women struggle to maintain their spirits while they endure dehumanizing abuse as inmates of a Magdalene Sisters Asylum.
Peter Mullan has said that the film was initially made because victims of Magdalene Asylums had no closure. They hadn't received any recognition, compensation, or apology. Many remained lifelong devout Catholics.
Well, what is it you're wanting to show me? Come on, Kevin, what's the secret?
In the beginning, a man plays a Taylor acoustic guitar. Taylor Guitars was established in 1974.
