Plot Summary
Nora Barnacle (Fionnula Flanagan), the widow of literary giant James Joyce (Chris O'Neill), recalls her late husband's affiliations with a number of women who influenced the author, including herself; his patron, Harriet Shaw Weaver (also Flanagan); and the publisher of his epic literary masterpiece "Ulysses," Sylvia Beach (also Flanagan). Joyce's relations with these women take on an added significance through their connections to important female characters in the writer's own works.
