Summer, 1981. Cáit, an introverted young Irish girl, is sent by her neglectful parents to live with estranged older relatives Seán and Eibhlín. Under their care and attentiveness, Cáit’s confidence blossoms, until a secret the couple have kept from her comes back to haunt them. Spoken mostly in the Irish Gaelic language, this debut feature from filmmaker Colm Bairéad uses restrained but assured storytelling that allows Cáit’s personal transformation to powerfully and profoundly unfold. Premiering at the Berlinale, the film won the Crystal Bear for Best Film and was later nominated for 11 awards at the Irish Film and Television Awards.
