A Shine of Rainbows Synopsis: Shy and picked on by the other boys in the orphanage, eight-year-old Tomás (John Bell) can’t believe that of all the children, the warm and beautiful Maire O’Donnell (Connie Neilsen) has chosen to adopt him. Before he knows it, he is in Maire’s care, sailing over the open water toward a new life. But Tomás’s optimism about a better future begins to wane when he meets Alec (Aidan Quinn), Maire’s husband. Alec can’t hide his disappointment that Tomás isn’t the kind of child he was hoping for, and his reticence to get to know Tomás leaves the boy wondering why this or any other family would want to adopt him.
Undeterred by her husband’s reserve, Maire introduces Tomás to the wonders of his new world and makes it clear that he is exactly the right child for the family. Through her love and encouragement, Tomás’s self-confidence grows; consequently, he finds himself making friends, adjusting to his new home and even rescuing an orphaned seal pup that he learns to care for. However, in order for the adoption to be official, Alec’s signature is required, a commitment he seems unwilling to make. Worried about being sent away, Tomás faces his greatest challenge as he tries to find a way to change Alec’s mind.
