When Tahmeena (Monic Hendrickx) stumbles onto John's (William McInnes) isolated farm, he has no choice but to take her in. She's been badly injured and speaks no English. While John's not inclined to welcome visitors, not since the suspicious death of his wife, he's even less inclined to involve the police. So he goes about his business as he waits for her to heal when he plans to send her on her way.
An initially reluctant voyage of mutual discovery begins as these two strangers gradually learn to communicate and connect.
Tahmeena brings the homestead back to life, reopening John's eyes to the beauty of his land. In return, John does his best to track down the lost daughter she sent ahead before herself fleeing Afghanistan.
As the layers of mistrust and hurt are peeled away, a love affair - passionate and poetic - unfolds to reveal the beauty of freedom, hope and choice.
But John and Tahmeena can't stay hidden away on the farm forever. They won't be truly free until they venture out. And when they do, the men who think they own Tahmeena come looking for her ... and they won't leave without her.
