Hannah can't wait to make her Holy Communion... only problem is she's Jewish!  Set in 1970s Dublin, audiences get a rare glimpse of Ireland through the cheery eyes of a seven-year-old girl. An Irish/Jewish film with an international feel, the beauty of the story lies within its simplicity, humor, and its appeal to the universal desire to fit in.
