    About to turn thirty, Alice is the youngest of three daughters and the black sheep. Drawn to far-flung and often dangerous countries, she has never been close to the man she believes is her father and is late to hear the news that he is dying. Daniel hasn"t had a roof over his head for almost thirty years. He makes sculptures out of the objects he finds on his walks through London. Approaching sixty, Daniel"s kept alive by the knowledge of one thing -- he has a daughter somewhere in the world he has never been able to find.
