Giulia’s world is an ancient one, frozen in time, rigorously devoted to its sacred texts - a world that ruthlessly shuts out those who don’t belong. Libero’s world is that of everyone else, with their mistakes, their strategies for getting by and starting over, their ability to love unconditionally. When she meets Libero, Giulia realizes her life can go in a different direction, of her own choosing. It’s a pure, inescapable passion, an intense new season in their lives, and a decision that will cost Giulia her inclusion in the Jehovah’s Witnesses community, and turn her into an outcast. Yet Libero will give her the greatest gift of love: the freedom to belong to the world outside, a shining new world full of future chances.
