‘There’s no shame in looking for help but can you pay the price?’
In EARLY DOORS we follow Ealga Culhoun who has fled her life in Ireland and onto the boats for London. She arrives in Shepherds Bush at the tail end of 1969 when the world has begun to move in new directions and all was changing in this pocket of London.
Luckily Ealga has landed on her feet thanks to her British cousin Tommy, who’s set her up with a bedsit and a barmaid’s job at the local pub. For a wee while all seems to be go swimmingly. But soon Ealga learns that everything has it’s cost and finds herself seeking shelter at Mammy Magee’s. Will she be willing to pay the price for Mammy’s help and avenge herself in the process?
