How do you go on after the death of a child? When six women, whose only common link is the fact that each of them has suffered the loss of a child, decide to travel to Africa, something remarkable occurs. They live and work with families dedicated to improving the lives of children. As they come to know each other and they discover a welcome reprieve from the depression, isolation and stagnation of life at home. The women share not just their stories and their pain but themselves – with each other and the children who touch their hearts at every turn.
