The story of Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, a formidable figure in the Irish civil rights movement. Bernadette was elected MP for Mid-Ulster in the late 1960s at just 21 and derided by opponents as 'Castro in a miniskirt'. Now in her sixties, having survived an assassination attempt, Bernadette remains just as articulate, engaging and uncompromising as ever.

Followed by a Q&A with the film's director Lelia Doolan.

"Lelia Doolan's film entertains as well as educates, thanks to her highly engaging subject and rich treasure trove of archival clips." - Variety
