On a grey and miserable morning in 2008, London businesswoman, Angelica Ford boards a plane and flies off to the blues and greens of her motherís island in the Caribbean.
 
Angelica is desperate. She is looking for a way to save her marriage and win back her daughter. A web of lies has torn a hole into her seemingly perfect world and she is convinced that only her mother, Josephine Dennis, can help her turn her life around.
 
Josephine Dennis arrived in England by ship on a cold winterís morning as a young mother joining her husband. She weathers a lifetime of secrets and betrayal, as she raises her family in 1960s London.
 
A matriarch with strong family values, she told her children colourful stories to guide them through life. It is the wisdom of one of these stories that Angelica seeks.
 
Josephine has one last story to tell Ė the story that could change both of their lives.
