Plot – Eilis has always lived in small town Enniscorthy, Ireland, where everyone knows everyone's business, until she is sent to America thanks to her sister, who wants to help her achieve her goals. Feeling like an exile, she arrives in chaotic Brooklyn already homesick. However, as soon as Eilis deftly learns to adjust to life in New York, she meets a witty, sweet and charismatic suitor who wants to conquer her at all costs. Just when it seems she is about to start a new life, a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland and to the life she left behind, causing her to make a decision that could mark her future forever. With her heart divided in two, Eilis tackles one of the most amazing and complicated dilemmas that characterize our ever-changing modern world: find a way to match the place from which we come to the one we dream of going to.
