year is 1847 and Annie Quinn is living in Ireland with her family.
It isn't an easy life. The potato crop has failed and her family

arrives from Annie's older sister Bridget. Bridget left for America
years before and now she has sent tickets for Annie and Thomas to join
her. Annie is reluctant to leave her home but her mother convinces
her that it is important for her to go to America. When they arrive,
things are not wonderful but they are about to get worse.
