Synopsis
Muslim convert Mary Hussain leads a quiet, contented life with her husband Ahmed, the captain of a cross-Channel ferry to France. But when Ahmed dies suddenly, Mary discovers that her husband may have been keeping secrets from her about his real connection to Calais.

Determined to uncover the full truth, Mary leaves her home to embark on a life-changing journey, the outcome of which will shake her to her core and force her to re-evaluate everything she had previously believed.
