RTE – CINEMATOGRAPHER
Last summer Michaella McCollum Connolly’s arrest in Peru with a suitcase full of cocaine made headlines across the world. The 20 year old had left her home in Dungannon, Co Tyrone for a summer working in the bars and clubs of Ibiza. But instead of getting a sun tan and a summer of lifelong memories, she ended up jailed for over six years after pleading guilty to drug smuggling.
With exclusive interviews from her mother and sister, the documentary follows their first 6000 mile trip to Peru to visit Michaella.
