Now a major motion picture starring Judi Dench: the heartbreaking true story of an Irishwoman and the secret she kept for 50 years. When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a “fallen woman.” Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him.

Philomena è poco più che una ragazzina quando rimane incinta. Rinchiusa in un convento, poco dopo darà alla luce Anthony. Per tre anni si occupa di lui tra quelle mura, fino a quando le suore non glielo portano via per darlo in adozione, dietro compenso, a una facoltosa famiglia americana, come accadeva in quegli anni a migliaia di altri figli del peccato. Non c'è stato giorno da allora in cui Philomena non abbia pensato al suo bambino, senza mai abbandonare il sogno di ritrovarlo, e cercando in segreto di rintracciarlo.

In 2013 the movie Philomena was shown in cinemas across the world and earned four Oscar nominations. The film was based on the true story of Philomena Lee, who was forced by the Catholic Church to give up her illegitimate son for adoption, and detailed her journey with journalist Martin Sixsmith to find her child 50 years later. In the weeks and months after the film went out, Martin was contacted by other mothers who had their own stories to tell. Now, Martin Sixsmith goes on a journey to investigate the Irish Catholic Church's role in an adoption trade which saw thousands of illegitimate children taken from their mothers and sent abroad, often with donations to the Church flowing in the other direction. In Ireland and in America, Martin hears the moving stories of the parents and children whose lives were changed forever and discovers evidence that prospective parents were not properly vetted - sometimes with tragic consequences.
