    This short drama, nominated for an Academy AwardŽ in 1998 as Best Live-Action Short, tells the story of Laura, a 12-year-old Protestant girl who wants to be a Riverdancer when she grows up. Her newly widowed father, struggling to raise his daughter as a single parent, and surprised by his daughter's interest in a traditionally Catholic and nationalist dance tradition, must reconceive his role as parent both to help her learn to dance and to come to terms with their mutual loss.
