Sinead O’Connor. The name conjures up an image of a girl with a shaved head, or a girl tearing up a photograph of the then Pope, John Paul II, or a singer who has been pushed out of the spotlight of pop music for her uncompromising personality. Through a contemporary feminist lens, this documentary looks at a five-year period, linking the singer’s career to the complex and eventful past of Ireland, where she was born.
