In 1950s Ireland, Protestant Sheila Kelly (Brady) marries Catholic Sean Cloney (Cunningham) and signs an agreement to raise their children Catholic to appease the mostly Catholic farming community, County Wexford. When it comes time for their daughter Eileen (Bolger) to attend school, however, a battle emerges over religion between headstrong Sheila and Milquetoast Sean. When things begin escalating into an all-out war that divides the villagers, Sheila flees with her two daughters to Scotland. Heavy-handed, melodramatic script displays a movie-of-the-week lack of subtlety, while one-dimensional characters offer little in the way of sympathy for anyone involved. Based on a true story.
