Tagline: Five sisters embrace the spirit of a people.

Plot: A young boy tells the story of growing up in a fatherless home with his unmarried mother and four spinster aunts in 1930's Ireland. Their lives are interrupted by the arrival of two men - the boy's long-lost father, who is off to Spain to fight the war against Franco, and an elderly uncle who has "come home to die" after a lifetime in America. Although life goes on as before for the boy and five sisters, something will happen that will destroy their peaceful existence as they once knew it.
