Mary O’Hara, a cheeky 12-year-old Irish girl, is devastated when her Grandmother, Emer, is admitted to hospital. Sad and worried, she visits Emer regularly and it is after once such visit that she meets a new neighbour, Tansey. She is young, friendly & talkative but keeps disappearing… Even stranger, she says she has an urgent message for Mary’s Granny.
When Mary’s mother hears that her daughter has made a new friend she is curious to meet her and is taken aback by Tansey’s distinctive name, explaining that it is the same as Mary’s Great Grandmother! Slowly, pieces of the jigsaw fi t together and they realise with shock that Tansey is…a ghost!
Brought together in the most surreal of situations, Mary and her mother, along with Tansey, head to the hospital to pick up Emer. From there, four generations of women head off on one last glorious road trip together. Conversation flows as they take a trip down memory lane, preparing themselves for final goodbyes but warm in the knowledge that life is most definitely amazing, quite often truly mysterious and if you’re lucky, full of love.
