Ireland, 1937. Young, beautiful and trusting, Elizabeth Sullivan's world suddenly turns tragic. Pregnant after a brief affair, her family quickly marries her to an elderly farmer and banishes her to a remote County Kerry peninsula. Here Elizabeth resigns herself to a loveless, brutal marriage and begins to raise a family. What follows is poignant story of love lost and found, of hatred and reconciliation, tears and laughter, truth and understanding and in the end, the ultimate peace that love offers to those who never lose faith.
