This lyrical three act drama is a story of love, loss and survival told through three generations of Irish sisters. The play spans the years from 1869 to 1911. Scenes shift from a poor farm in Ireland to the fishing port of New Bedford, Massachusetts, and climax in New York City just after the deadly Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire. As the daughters of McDermotts, Connellys and Kenndys pass against this colorful panorama, one thing is paramount in their lives: family. It is the thread that binds them together and strengthens them to survive against all odds.
