Synopsis

Seven-year-old Liam (Anthony Borrows) is the youngest child of a close-knit family growing up in Liverpool during the depression of the 1930s. When Liam's father Tom (Ian Hart) loses his job as a dock worker, the once-proud man is unable to find another job, and gradually drifts towards supporting Oswald Mosely's fascists. The other members of the family struggle on as best they can, but with Liam attending communion lessons taught by an Irish priest, and sister Teresa (Megan Burns) working as a housemaid for a Jewish family, Tom's racist rhetoric soon begins affecting all their lives.
