Perry Ogden documented the experience of the young poor in Dublin with his photo book “Pony Kids”. His first feature moves on from those representations, offering an intimate portrait of the traveller community. It focuses on 10-year-old Winnie, who lives with her mother and siblings in a trailer on the side of the road in a desolate part of Dublin . She is at odds with her environment as she wanders the streets of the prosperous, modern city, while her family endure visits from the council, social workers and sympathetic activist groups, struggling with bureaucracy, prejudice and poverty. With a cast of mostly non-professional actors drawn from the travelling community.
