By Elaine Murphy

Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull

One year can bring extraordinary change; just ask Amber, Lorraine, and Kay, three generations of North Dublin women who find themselves suddenly facing the unexpected.

Young Amber's case of indigestion--or perhaps a brutal hangover?--grows into something more, while her mother Lorraine discovers salsa dancing after an incident at work leads to therapist-suggested self-care. Grandmother Kay, "on the wrong side of sixty, but not dead yet," struggles to take care of a personal itch while adjusting to live as a caretaker for her beloved Gem. As the year moves forward, the women confront their individiual challenges with courage and humor, finding strength in one another and discovering the beauty and complexity of family.
