When Tahmeena stumbles onto John's isolated farm, he has no
choice but to take her in. An illegal refugee, she's been badly
beaten 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.
A reluctant voyage of mutual discovery begins as these two
strangers are forced to communicate and connect through signs and
pictures and come a gradual understanding of each other's
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 daughter she sent ahead from war-ravaged 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 they 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.
