Ïrish Film Berlin - Festival 2024

Shabby and unfulfilled, middle-aged middle-class Marian finds that her recent retirement only
serves to shine a light on her deep unhappiness as her cruel and tight-fisted husband Nigel controls her Life. She stumbles upon a job as a census enumerator and, on her challenging inner-city route,
encounters Jewel, a teenage girl who has been living her life as a prostitute since her mother abandoned her.

The two become reluctant friends and Marian comes to admire the girl’s independence and strength,
as she realises the extent of her abusive marriage. Jewel helps Marian find the strength to break free and she realises that, with her new friend by her side, she has everything she needs to forge a new and
empowering future.

Winner of Best Independent Film at the 35th Galway Film Fleadh and Best Narrative Feature at the 2023 Kerry International Film Festival.
