Pavee Lackeen

Pavee Lackeen tells the story of Winnie, a ten year old Irish Traveller girl, who lives with her mother and siblings in a ramshackle trailer on the side of the road in a desolate industrialized area of Dublin. The film follows Winnie through several weeks of her life as she struggles for her identity as a young Traveller girl in contemporary Ireland. Winnie fills her time wandering through the run-down shops and stalls of Dublin’s inner city, while her mother Rosie struggles to get her family housed by the local council.
