Cáit, a nine-year old girl, from an overcrowded, dysfunctional family is taken by her father to live with distant relatives for the summer months. These are Seán and Eibhlín Kinsella, a middle-aged farming couple she has never met. Without knowing when she will return home, Cáit is left at the strangers’ house with only the clothes she is wearing. Slowly, in the care of the Kinsellas, she blossoms and discovers a new way of living. But in this house where affection grows and there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one.
