Overview

Jane Lee discovers her mother Philomena fell pregnant as a teenager in 1952 Ireland and was forced to give up the baby to the sisters at Roscrea Abbey. Jane pitches the story to former Labour adviser turned BBC journalist Martin Sixsmith, who agrees to help Philomena track down her boy. Using his connections, Martin takes Philomena to Washington DC to sift through official documents, hoping for a breakthrough to reunite the old woman with the son she never wanted to give up.
