Brooklyn is the story of a young woman, Eilis who moves from small town Ireland to Brooklyn, NY where, unlike home, she has the opportunity for work and for a future — and love, in the form of Italian-American, Tony. When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself absorbed into her old community, but now with eligible Jim courting her. As she repeatedly postpones her return to America, Eilis finds herself confronting a terrible dilemma - a heart-breaking choice between two men and two countries.
