KEVIN NEAL, as a young child, survives what happened in 1798 but loses everyone. When he is older and again evicted by a landlord, he still holds onto the memory of the crumpled remains of Anastasia Kelly’s letter. He has found her, but ANTY is as much a stranger as the tenants who live around an Abbey. He finds her aloof and part of a different world. The orphans try to hide from the past, but the violence encircling threatens what little they have left. Can the orphans survive the wake of an Irish rebellion and the monsters unleashed?
