It's 1984 in the west of Ireland, and two sisters have unwittingly betrayed each other.

Set against the sweeping landscape of rural Ireland and Dublin City in the 1980s, My Heart Went Walking follows Una, who gives up everything to protect the people she loves, and her sister Ellie, who is left behind to pick up the pieces.

Una runs away from her home and family in Donegal to start over in the "big smoke" of Dublin City, leaving a bereft family and the love of her life - Cullen - looking for answers.

"I can't bear to keep walking. But you can't keep a secret in this town unless you leave with it."

A year later, wondering if it might be safe to go back, she comes face-to-face with the heartbreaking reality that if she does so, she'll ruin her sister Ellie's newfound happiness with Cullen.

Una stays away and processes her pain alone while building a new life for herself with help from an unexpected source ... until tragedy strikes and she must go home, where the secrets she has fought so hard to keep could destroy all their lives.

My Heart Went Walking will take you back to the '80s and pull you in to the Irish approach to life - that of grit and laughter - and leave you with an overriding reminder of the possibility of hope and restoration in all things.
