It’s 1984 and Ann, a pregnant teenager, awoke to realise that she was about to give birth, ending up in the Grotto of her local church. Shockingly two hours later, Ann and her baby would be dead. This story will shine a light into the last thirteen hours of her life, a girl alone abandoned by society. Based on a true story that shook the world.
Winner of Michael Dwyer Discovery Award at 2023 Dublin International Film Festival.
Nominated for two Irish Film and Television Awards (Best Supporting Actress and Best Lead Actress).
“It’s a strikingly naturalistic performance from Zara Devlin in what is her first main role, and Creagh deftly accentuates Ann’s relatively young age and her impossible situation of being young, unmarried and pregnant” - Declan Burke, Irish Examiner.
