Elderly ex-sailor Howard (James Cosmo) has been pining for the loss of his wife and the awkward reasons for her untimely death. Living alone and finicky, he deals with his daughter Grace (Catherine Walker) who makes sure he has control of his daily routine. Finding Howard has been struggling with his everyday care, she hires Annie (Bríd Brennan), a housemaid. When his attitude interferes with Annie’s ability to provide for him, she finds herself questioning whether she should continue.

Annie’s charming ways, along with some of her loving grandchildren, start to turn the tide. Director Klaus Haro does a very good job of spinning the tale and provides some excellent locations, cinematography and sets notably commensurate with Ireland where the film was made. He moves the film along at a very nice pace so home viewing distractions should not become a bother.
