Based on true events, Evelyn tells the inspiring story of real-life hero Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan, Die Another Day) and his young children, Evelyn (introducing Sophie Vavasseur), Maurice and Dermot. Abandoned by his wife, Doyle does his best to make it as a single dad, raising his kids alone in Ireland. Their life isn't easy and when his wife's mother reports her daughter's abandonment to the authorities, the power of the Church and the Irish courts take his children away and put them in orphanages. Doyle is devastated. Vowing to reunite his family, he enlists the help of new friend Bernadette Beatiie (Julianna Margulies, ER), her solicitor brother (Stephen Rea, The End of the Affair), their american lawyer friend Nick (Aidan Quinn), and Nick's mentor Tom Conolly (Alan Bates, Sum of All Fears). Together the attempt to do what has never been done before - challenge a law before the Irish supreme court. Doyle's fight to keep his family intact becomes as uplifting testament to the strength of a father's love and the power of the human spirit.
