Summary
Rural Ireland, 1936. It's a pivotal time for the five unmarried Mundy sister. Europe is on the brink of war, their small village is on the verge of incredible change and the sisters have troubles of their own. The head of the household is ther imperious, eldest sister Kate, barely holding the family together with income from her teaching job. Her sisters, saintly caretaker Agnes, the simple-minded Rose, earthy Maggie and the romantic Christine all do piecework and odd jobs to support themselves and Chrsitine's beloved illegitimate young son Michael. Into their lives comes two men who threaten to disrupt this delicate family union: Michael's errant father Gerry and the sisters' brother, a mentally unbalanced priest returning from decades of missionary work in remote Africa. Despite their hardships, the sisters are able to embrace life and all its complexities and dance with joy in their hearts
