An Cailín Cúin is based on the novel Foster by Claire Keegan, and was directed by Colm Bairéad.

Set in the 1980s, it tells the story of young girl Cáit (Catherine Clinch) who spends a summer with a foster family, away from her dysfunctional family. It has its Irish premiere at the Dublin Film Festival next week.
