Meet the Augustts ... a loving, Irish family who, like all families, are a bit complicated.

Meet the Augustts ... a loving, Irish family who, like all families, are a bit complicated. But they are bound together by their love for each other and the way their words shape their world. Things become a little more complicated when Annette the mother has a stroke and the force of nature who is Granny Mae-Ann comes to take charge to try and keep the family together.

She has a job on. There's the son Jacob with all his words trapped in his head by The Bloody Autism, the father Mickey struggling to express himself at all, and Jenny, the daughter, quietly writing it all down to try and make sense of it. M for Mammy is about language and love and the power of a family to heal itself. It is about telling stories, reading stories, and writing them down. It's about coming home, about finding language and about the truth of words. It is a story of a young boy without words, of a mother who has lost her words and a father lost and full of stories he has to learn to tell.

And then there's the granny who hammers and shapes words on the anvil of love, and a daughter who tries to speak for them all.
