How much does love cost?

Curiosity has consequences...

It can cost you your childhood–if it doesn’t kill you.


For the new African country Zambia, 1964 heralds a joyous and turbulent time: the celebration of its independence from Britain. Thirteen-year-old Rianna and ten-year-old Lukas and Anthony, live an idyllic life on Madzi Moyo–a tucked-away Mission station. That changes when the trio stumbles upon two hidden AK-47s and is caught by Mavuto, the guns’ owner, a staunch African nationalist. He abducts them on the spot. Over the course of a single night and morning, a race and rescue mission ensues, which, as the hours pass, becomes more violent and out-of-control.

Mistaking gratitude for love comes at a price.


In 1971, Oxford student Emilee Stephens marches with the just-formed Women’s Liberation Movement. She meets Connor O’Hannigan, an intriguing sympathizer who harbors more secrets than the reason he’s at the march.


Despite her friends’ repeated warnings—and even hints that he may be in the IRA—Emilee falls for Connor when he saves her life in a kayaking accident.


The two marry and have a daughter, Caitlynn Aine. On the child’s third birthday, daughter and father disappear, leaving only an abandoned car and a small red jacket behind.


Decades pass—until Emilee receives a letter from her presumed-dead former husband.
