Brief Synopsis

A woman is haunted by vivid and strangely familiar dreams of a mysterious mother and her children.<P>Jenny, a happily married American architect, suddenly begins to experience recurring dreams about a woman named Mary living in a small Irish town with her four children and her abusive husband. Soon

Jenny, a happily married American architect, suddenly begins to experience recurring dreams about a woman named Mary living in a small Irish town with her four children and her abusive husband. Soon after the dreams begin, Jenny discovers she is pregnant. As her pregnancy progresses, Jenny's dreams turn into what seem to be personal recollections of the past. The visions intensify so much that they enable her to draw a detailed map of Mary's hometown.

Convinced that she is recalling her past life as Mary, Jenny tries to persuade her husband, Doug, and her son that her dreams are actually real memories. As her visions continue and become more detailed, Jenny realizes that Mary lived in 1930 and that her children could still be alive. Desperately needing answers about what she believes to be her life as Mary, Jenny begins a zealous quest to find the children. Her phone calls and letters are futile, so, with the encouragement of her mother, Margaret, Jenny travels to Ireland to search for the children.

Memories easily guide Jenny to Mary's hometown, and the pieces start to fall into place. Jenny's detailed recollections lead her to Sonny, Mary's eldest child, whose unique relationship with his mother has haunted him as well. While everyone struggles to accept what Jenny proves to be true, she must learn how to make peace with the past and live in the present.
