Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC
correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee,
PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy
conceived out of wedlock - something her Irish-Catholic community
didn't have the highest opinion of - and given away for adoption in the
United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a
contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's
whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for
the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith, a BBC
reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
