Rural Ireland, 1981. Cáit is a reserved nine-year-old girl who is neglected by her poor, dysfunctional and overly large family. She struggles quietly with difficulties at school and at home, and has learned to go unnoticed by those around her. When summer comes and her mother's due date approaches, Cáit is sent to live with distant relatives. Not knowing when she will return home, she stays in the home of strangers with nothing but the clothes on her back. Gradually, thanks to the care of the Kinsella family, Cáit makes remarkable progress and discovers a new way of life. But in this house where affection reigns and there seem to be no secrets, she discovers a painful truth.
