It is 1987 and a small Irish community is preparing for a wedding. The day before the ceremony, a group of young friends, including the bride and groom, are involved in an accident. Three survive.

Three are killed.
The lives of the families are shattered and the rifts between them ripple throughout the small town. Connor survived, but living among the angry and the mourning is almost as hard as carrying the shame of having been the driver. He leaves the only place he knows for another life, taking his secrets with him.

Travelling first to Liverpool, then London, he eventually makes a homeof sortsfor himself in New York, where he finds shelter and the possibility of forging a new life.
But the secretsthe unspoken longings and regrets that have come to haunt those left behindwill not be silenced. Before long, Connor will have to confront his past.
