On the road to Christmas Island, five desperate strangers meet. The group, including an abused pregnant mother and a grieving refugee, has a history that they are compelled to run from. Despite their differences, they are all united in wanting more than their lives have offered them.
Yet, though the journey is treacherous, there is no guarantee that they will be welcomed into Christmas Island. The elven inhabitants there have come to fear outsiders whom they see as corrupt. In order to reach the land of their dreams, the five strangers must band together in love and trust and finally to prove their worth to the implacable authority that bars the gates to their paradise.
