Doubting details of her mother’s deathbed story, a skeptical daughter drags her brother on a genealogical goose chase through the Canadian prairies to the remote Icelandic highland. Becoming spellbound by an increasing sense of belonging to an unfolding story, she discovers a vital piece of its telling is missing: herself.
