Storyline

Janey Mary tells the story of a young five year old girl in post-World War II Dublin, who is sent out by her mother onto the cold and wet streets to beg for food. In her desperate search for food she misses school and remembers that she's also going to miss her old friend Fr. Benedict, the Augustinian priest. Her search leads her to where a large crowd of people are queuing outside the Augustinian Church waiting for bread rations to be handed out. It is here, in the mad scramble for food, that little Janey Mary is trampled on and left for dead - it is her old friend Fr. Benedict who risks his own life to save hers. Written by Paul Brady
