Josiane Bisimwa, a Sudanese woman,  falls victim to unspeakable violence and destruction that ravishes her small village and destroys her young family. She escapes to a refugee camp where she befriends Katherine Rice, a grieving American doctor who brings her to the United States. Although no longer in the Sudan, Josiane is plagued by guilt and is haunted by her past and the family she left behind.  Bonded by grief and personal loss, these women struggle to heal, find peace, and the courage to love again.
