Annie Fitzpatrick feels trapped. When her Mammy passed away she was left to take care of her brothers and sisters, while her Daddy chose to lose himself in a world of self pity and drunkenness. Her memories are full of the time before their family collapsed – a time when she was engaged to be married to the handsomest man in the State and her future looked bright as a brand new penny. As she watches her siblings grow up, build their lives and have the families she had once been destined for herself, she begins to wonder if it is time to leave her Daddy to his own misery and go in search of the man who once said he loved her more than life itself.
