Summary
Inspired by a custody case brought before the Irish courts in 1955, Desmond Doyle is a father fighting for the custody of his three children after abandonment by their mother. Due to the Irish law of the time, children could not be raised by one parent in what the courts considered a broken home, thus allowing the Doyle children to be placed in church run orphanages, where neglect and cruelty were not out of the ordinary. Desmond will take his fight to the highest courts to win their freedom
