Ireland in 1964. Three women, who have been impregnated and are deemed sullied by their families, are forcibly sent to the Magdalene asylum ran by the Sisters of Mercy, where they must atone for their sins. Based on a true story which was for too long ignored by the general public, this film depicts the dehumanizing conditions in which these women laboured for 364 days a year with no pay, constantly humiliated and for indefinite periods of time. The viewer follows the desperate attempts of these three women to escape.
