Shot in Turf Lodge in West Belfast, the film provides an account of the everyday life of the community, particularly its women.
A social documentary which considers life in the area and the affects and influence of the Troubles, especially on women.
Various women from the estate comment on their lives, and a pupil, teacher and nuns from the Cross and Passion Girl’s School also comment on events arising from the Troubles and reveal the integral role Catholic teachings have on their attitudes and lives.
A schoolgirl, a housewife, a nun speak fluently of the forces shaping theur daily lives. British soldiers are shown only as distant figures in khaki squatting by house corners, rifles cocked, next to kids who imperviously continue their games. The film’s title comes form the name of the local Catholic girls’ school.
