How to Keep an Alien

How to Keep an Alien is a funny and tender real-life story in which Irish Sonya and Australian Kate meet and fall in love, but Kate’s visa is up and she must leave the country. Together they must find a way to prove to the Department of Immigration that they have the right to live together in Ireland.
