Orphaned at seventeen, Anna arrives in Dublin to live with her estranged grandparents and alcoholic uncle. She receives a mixed reception and the tension in her new home is unrelenting. Just why does Grandpa despise her so much?

Set in the 1950s, Anna is a coming-of-age tale about a young girl's journey into womanhood as she discovers herself amid the atmospheric streets of Dublin City.
