Evelyn Based on true events, Evelyn tells the inspiring true story of real life hero Desmond Boyle and his young children. Struggling to raise his kids alone in Ireland in 1953, Desmond is devastated when the power of the Church and the Irish courts take his children away and put them in orphanages. Vowing to reunite his family, he enlists the help of his friends and together they attempt to do what has never been done before — challenge a law before the Irish Supreme Court. Desmond's fight to keep his family intact becomes an uplifting testament to a father's love and the power of the human spirit.
