With a baby brother on the way and several other siblings jostling for food and space, Cáit’s distracted parents send her away to live with distant relatives for the summer. There, in a house with ‘no secrets’, Eibhlín and her husband Seán show her a level of attention and affection that is completely alien to her. Under their care, Cáit – an exquisite performance from young star Catherine Clinch – blossoms and develops from timid houseguest to surrogate daughter. Adapted from Claire Keegan’s novella FOSTER by first-time feature director Colm Bairéad, this is a profoundly moving and tender film that will stay with you long after the credits have stopped rolling.
