“…in the ‘Irish Midlands’ in 1862,  a young girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse ‘Lib Wright’ is brought to a tiny village to observe young ‘Anna O’Donnell’.

“Tourists and pilgrims mass to witness the girl who is said to have survived without food for months. Is the village harbouring a saint ‘surviving on manna from heaven’ or are there more ominous motives at work?”
