When 38-Year-old Conner O’Rourke arrives in Ireland after an absence of thirty years, he’s in bits. His marriage is falling apart, his business in Australia is bankrupt, and he’s hearing voices in his mind urging him to return to his childhood home. The island of Inis Mór.
His grandmother has contacted him, saying that she is dying, and must speak with him. But when he arrives on Inis Mór; a hauntingly lonely, starkly beautiful island in Galway Bay, she has already passed, leaving him a cottage and a dilapidated old sailing boat.
A mysterious old seaman appears, offering to help rebuild the boat and, as they work together, the old man tells Conner stories. Stories of absent fathers and lost sons. Stories that could help Conner regain integrity if he can muster the courage to follow his heart.
