English / Gaelic (English subtitles)
Cáit is a shy and anxious child growing up in relative poverty in Ireland, her experience of family life consisting of nothing but emotional neglect. To give respite to her overcrowded household, she is sent to stay with relatives on a farm. The young girl blossoms under the care of her mother’s cousin Eibhlín and her husband Seán, and despite his initial resistance, they quickly start treating her as their own child. But as the summer draws to a close, Cáit discovers a heartbreaking secret. This is an emotionally charged yet subtle film dealing with primal concerns like childhood, grief and family with quiet dignity. Based on Claire Keegan's short story ‘Foster’, a popular text in Irish schools, this Irish-language adaptation offers insights into 1980s rural Ireland and the delicate nature of nurturing.
