1984. In the Moroccan village of Zitoune, Hanane’s love for Irishman Gus is forbidden. Forced by her father to flee her home with the man she loves, Hanane is certain she is running towards her destiny. But she has made a decision that will haunt her family for years to come.
2009. When Addy discovers an unfinished letter and a mysterious photograph in her late father’s belongings, she decides to journey to Morocco in search of answers. But she is quickly pulled into a world that she doesn’t understand.
The longer Addy stays, the more she starts to wonder just how many secrets are hiding behind the cascading waterfalls of Zitoune. And when history starts to repeat itself, it seems her journey might just change the person she is forever.
