ANNIE: OUT OF THE ASHES

Promo
The daughter of a white Irish traveller mother and a black British father, from birth Annie was shunned by her family. Her mother asked for Annie to be adopted – unwilling to raise a mixed race girl in a strict traveller community.

Then, at the age of just 4 weeks, Annie was found in a burning caravan. She’s only alive today because somebody ran in to save her, took her to hospital and disappeared. She has never met this good samaritan or the family that abandoned her. In this film, Annie embarks on an extraordinary journey to try to uncover her past.
