A chance encounter changes two strangers forever

Two strangers meet on a train in Dublin. Maz is on her way to a demonstration protesting the Eighth Amendment, Catholic Ireland’s blanket ban on abortion. Bricks is hoping he will get to see his young daughter after a wild night on the town. The two are an unlikely pair, and yet the course of a day will change them both forever. A tender and timely tale about listening, learning, and coming to terms with our past.
