When Owen Whelan revealed his secret, he was set free from a haunting past and an uncertain future for his son, Ennis. However, in order to know the true depths of his heart, first we must follow him all the way back to a dirt road on a chilly and bitter spring dawn in Ireland. Behind the locked doors of his memories and hidden beneath shame, hunger, and eventually escape, we learn the true meaning of the proverb, "There’s hope from the ocean but none from the grave." Owen’s journey will teach him that sometimes, you have to cross that ocean not only to survive but to finally find love, life, and become the man worthy of your own admiration and respect.
There are turning points in life you cannot come back from, but if you’re brave enough, you can begin again.
