Documentary telling the story of Mary Devine, a 19th-century Irish migrant who left Corca Dhuibhne in search of fortune in the USA. Having married a violent man, she found herself isolated in the American Mid-West, and decided her best course of action was to return home. The programme reveals how, with her four-year-old daughter strapped to her back, Mary walked for hundreds of miles to New York, where she sought a return passage to her native Ireland.
