Plot Summary

The unexpected death of her husband sends a woman and her seven children, ages 2-14, into emotional turmoil and financial crisis in 1967 Dublin. She is forced to borrow money from a ruthless loan shark to make ends meet. She faces her dismal existence by selling fruits and vegetables at an open air market where she spends time with a best friend who gives her encouragement. Wishing to escape her existence, if only for a short time, she dreams of finding enough money to attend an upcoming Tom Jones concert. She realizes her dream by accepting her first date with a French baker. Her kids pool their money so she can buy a new dress. Of course, eventually the family has to face the loan shark, but this is a movie where obstacles are maybe too easily overcome. Written by John Sacksteder

Edit
Trivia During the filming of the movie, Anjelica Huston was "arrested" on Dublin's Moore Street. She had been convinced by some of the street stall owners to try doing her sales pitch for real. As a joke someone informed the local beat Garda that there was someone selling on Moore Street without a trader's licence. Not recognizing Anjelica Huston, the officer in question detained her. He saw the funny side of it when it was revealed who she was and what she was doing and let her go. See more »
Goofs The movie is set in 1967 but the car that Tom Jones uses at the end of the movie to visit Agnes is a 1971 Lincoln Continental. See more »
