They were called the Sisters O'Donnell in County Tipperary. All with flaming red hair and tempers to match, they came to seek their fortunes in 1920s Liverpool full of ambition and hope. Gina planned to be a star of the theatre, Mary Kate wanted to find a husband. And gentle, timid Bridget just wanted to get away from the fighting around her and have a calm, peaceful life. But Liverpool wasn't what they thought it would be. Work was impossible to find and their money was running out. And the O'Donnell girls had a long way to go before they could realise some of their dreams.
