Thirsty for change, Millie dreams of a better life – one with her own home and fresh water from her own taps. When her husband tells of his new job, her fortunes look set to change. Up against resentment from her teenage children, responsible for her aging father and with another baby on the way, will her dreams ever become a reality?
This moving drama, set to a backdrop of evocative Irish music, captures the camaraderie of living in a close-knit community, where love, laughter and hope blossom against the harshest of circumstances.
