Sandra, who lives in Dublin, is a mum of two young daughters. After fleeing from an abusive relationship, she seeks to provide refuge for her family. When it becomes clear that the local council won’t be able to provide her with a home, she decides to build one herself in the garden space offered to her by a friend. Although she must juggle two part-time jobs as a carer and a bartender, as well as navigating a new relationship with her ex-partner who still has visitation rights, and despite the fact she has no experience related to manual labour, Sandra is able to embrace her new way of living through the help afforded to her by the close-knit community around her. ‘Herself’ is an emotional, crowd-pleasing drama which features serious and pertinent themes around escaping domestic abuse and community spirit.
