A hard-hitting drama based on the true story of a young woman who must deal with the devastating effects of having a murderer for a brother.
Anne Marie O’Donnell pieces together the harrowing events that lead to the murders by her brother Brendan in the forest of East Clare, Ireland, of a young mother, her son and the curate, Father Joe Walsh. Piece by piece, as her story unfolds Anne Marie reveals the neglect by the state, the brutal physical beatings that her brother suffered as a child at home and the sexual abuse and rape inflicted by his nightmarish parish Priest whilst in his care. Ultimately, mistakes and lost opportunities all lead to tragic consequences.
