Ewan McGregor and Susan Lynch star in this passionate and true story of James Joyce and his lifelong love, Nora Barnacle. On June 10th 1904, walking down Dublin's Nassau Street in his yachting cap and canvas shoes, Joyce met Nora Barnacle, a tall, striking, brown haired girl from Galway. He fell in love with her immediately. Sensual, witty, courageous and unwilling to be controlled by anyone, Nora offered Joyce all the qualities he yearned for in a woman. Nora became James Joyce's inspiration and, without her, the world would be without his literary legacy.
