The tender and compelling story of a young girl’s relationship with an older man.

A young Catholic girl gives her confession from the edge of Camlough Lake. She speaks of her life in Newry and her job in the factory with the girls. She speaks of her first love. She speaks of a relationship with a man twice her age.

As the darkness of the lake calls out to her, she will do anything to find her peace.
