When Millie sets out from her home in Normandy, Northern France, to visit her grandchildren in Canada, she hopes for a smooth
journey, but the sight of a grief-stricken young boy she meets in the airport lounge deeply affects her.
On board Millie and the child are seated close, and to console him she casts a magic spell of stories. But trying to guide Joe to a world where he can find comfort means she must call up a disturbing part of her own past.
An eccentric priest, snakes, and blood-thirsty natives observed by an impertinent guardian angel are also amongst the passengers.
Will the flight across the Atlantic reach Montreal safely?
