A woman trapped in a dangerous criminal underworld forms a bond with a troubled man who convinces her to escape her life of vice and find the child she gave away.

Join us for the Irish Premiere of Wait for Me on Sat 27 May at 6.15pm, followed by a Q&A with lead actor Karen Hassan, director Keith Farrell, and producer Thea Burrows.

Set in the north of England, Wait for Me is the story of Alison (Belfast actor Karen Hassan), who after arriving from Ireland is trapped in a life of crime but looking to escape. When she meets Sam (Aaron Cobham), a damaged man with a troubled past, he opens Alison’s eyes to the fact that life can be a beautiful thing if you meet it halfway.

They hit the road in search of the child she abandoned with her sister Karen (Elva Trill). Plagued by regret Alison tries to reconnect with her child.  Her demons come back to haunt her, as pimp Max (Neil Bell) tracks them down. Alison realises she must confront Max to protect her family from the sins of her past.
