Not Jaded West of Frances



Frances is over-qualified and under-enthused. She works in a newspaper obituaries section and writes letters back to bereaved families. Frances’ editor is far from impressed. When word reaches the newspaper that Sister Ina Marsh of Ballymun, Dublin, has died, Frances decides to hop on a plane and spit on her grave. It’s an act of revenge long overdue. Ina Marsh is, after all, the woman who left Frances’ then 18-year-old grandmother high, dry and without so much as a friend in Jesus. This is one woman’s saliva-fuelled odyssey to rectify the wrongs of history.
