75 Years in Japan - Official trailer

In 1935, a young missionary nun travels to the other side of the world thinking she will never see home again. At 100 years old, Jennie O' Sullivan unexpectedly returns to Ireland.

In a bid to capture the end of an era, her cousin, TV journalist James Creedon, decides to record her memories. What was meant as a single interview turned into a compelling year-long voyage.

With emotion and humour, Jennie recounts her journey from the staunchly Catholic Ireland of her youth right up to modern day Japan. Through war and peace, hers is a story of wisdom, devotion and endurance.

She was the last Irish missionary nun in Japan.
