As worlds collide, the very human cost of war is revealed.

When a well-meaning Canadian aid worker in Athens decides to take a young refugee boy into her care, she is unexpectedly jailed and accused of kidnapping. The boy is just one of thousands who in desperation cross the Mediterranean in rickety boats in the hopes of using Greece as the conduit to a better life elsewhere. But even here, on the brink of freedom, these refugees who have already sacrificed so much could stand to lose yet more.
