This Promise - a film about female homelessness in Ireland.


This Promise - a film about female homelessness in Ireland.
Co-written by Ryan and Ní Luanaigh, and produced by James Gaffney, ‘This Promise’ tells the story of Cheryl, a woman living in emergency accommodation with her young daughter. Realising that this is not a suitable environment for the girl, Cheryl decides, with a heavy heart, that her daughter should live with her ex-partner. At the same time, Cheryl forms a friendship with another homeless woman, Maria (Jasmine Oschun), that keeps both women going. “At the core of 'This Promise', is a vision to make a film that is as true to life as possible. We are in contact with several homeless organisations, who have generously opened their doors to us and are contributing to how we present the world that our characters live in.”
