When Hanna finds notebooks in her mother’s belongings, she decides to travel up the St.Lawrence river, to try to find the thread which could tie her life to Simone’s, this silent woman who distanced herself from her own life. Along the river, Hanna will meet Antoine, her mother’s true love, and will go all the way back to 1914, to the sinking of the Empress of Ireland. She will discover how personal tragedies which affect generations sometimes stem from a catastrophe, and how the survivors can be the true castaways. Through this journey, there will be the power of art and that of friendship to escort a luminous and demanding interior quest.
