“Gerard Barrett (Pilgrim Hill, Glassland) returns with an intimate, timely and painfully real portrait of homeless life in contemporary Ireland.”

Competition Entry
World Premiere

Twenty-four hours in the life of a young Irish mother and child as they battle homelessness while living in emergency accommodation, searching for a stable life. Another day begins with another daily struggle. After receiving an eviction notice from the hotel they call home for now, the mother makes numerous attempts towards securing a place to stay for one more night. After exhausting all options available and as the possibility of them having nowhere to live becomes a reality once more, she begins to question the unstable life she is providing for her child, in a world where they have no place to call home.”
