My Name is Saoirse 

Rural Ireland, 1987. Saoirse lives in a peach coloured bungalow with her Dad and big brother Brendan. Her best friend is Siobhán, who has a glorious fountain of ginger hair, a whisper like a foghorn and an arse that distracts all the men at Mass. Saoirse prefers running through fields to chasing after boys, but Siobhán has other ideas. After a night out drinking with the lads, Saoirse discovers her pregnancy and is forced to set out on journey that will take her miles away from her home and the carefree adolescence she once knew.
