Ireland 1984. End of January. 15-year old Ann leaves the house one morning taking a pair of scissors with her. They miss her at school. Nobody knows where she went. Late afternoon a few boys find her in the local Maria Grotto. With her baby-son whose umbilical chord has been cut. They're both dead.
'Help would always have been forthcoming', says sister Immaculata, the head of the school.
But Ann never asked. Was it her shame or fear that stopped her? Ann is not the only one. This short film is a tribute to the many Irish girls like Ann who suffered as much, but whose story never got out.
