Storyline

On the 31st January 1984, Ann awoke to realise that she was going to have this baby. The fear she felt must have been palpable but she still even remembered to get a pair of scissors to cut the umbilical cord later. Having left the house early Ann scurried around to find somewhere to have the child, on her own. Ending up in the Grotto of the local church in Granard, a small country town in middle Ireland, Ann gave birth to a stillborn boy. Boys coming home from school found her in a very precarious medical condition. Some two hours later, Ann would be dead. Childbirth is a very scary scenario in hospital and imagine, on your own, in a grotto, fifteen, the pain, the bleeding and finally the baby stillborn. Visualise, fifteen, a stillborn baby, realising that you killed your child, in the Grotto, forced by society to be there. We will show what Ann was thinking and going through on the day but will also get the perspective of other important characters in this story of their impression ... Written by hill 16 Films
