Three young Irish women struggle to maintain their spirits while they endure dehumanizing abuse as inmates of a Magdalene Sisters Asylum.
Former Magdalene Asylum inmate Mary-Jo McDonagh told director and writer Peter Mullan that the reality of the Magdalene Asylums was much worse than depicted in the film.
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.
