Three young Irish women struggle to maintain their spirits while they endure dehumanizing abuse as inmates of a Magdalene Sisters Asylum.
The film shows the asylum experimenting with washing machines. The widespread adaptation of the household appliance would become a significant factor to the asylums' economic viability being fatally undermined and led to their ultimate closure.
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.
