For decades, Catholic Ireland locked children into institutions if they were conceived out of wedlock. Now, the survivors of this brutal practice reckon with the crimes that cost them their childhood, hoping to heal and find the feeling of family they were denied in youth.

A Q&A with filmmakers Mia Mullarkey and Alice MacDowell, and a protagonist from the film follows the screening.
