An epic tale of love and survival
This award winning miniseries traces the difficult passage of young Mary Keane (Aoife McMahon) from servitude in Ireland to the squalor of rough-and-tumble Newfoundland in the early 1800s. Escaping attempted rape and abuse, Mary moves on with her infant daughter to find shelter at a remote fishing station run by Thomas Hutchings (Colm Meaney Layer Cake, Kings). In a time and place where life and death are a hairs breadth apart, Mary joins the communitys struggle for survival against sickness and starvation. All of the Capes people are fugitives of one kind or another, but by pulling together through hardships and tragedies, they forge a new life of hope and even love.

Also I have had the opportunity to visit the site where it was filmed in NL. I always said, after being in the Harbour Grace, NL museum that the life of Peter Easton, pirate and the story of Sheila Nageira, said to be an Irish princess, who was kidnapped and brought to the new world. She is buried in Carboneer, NL. Leone Fitzgerald
