This is a magnificent odyssey weaving fact, fiction, history and memory, about a pair of Spanish exiles escaping the Spanish Civil war on the “ship of hope”, Pablo Neruda’s humanitarian act of saving thousands of displaced refugees. Victor and Rozer form a bond through the loss of their brother and husband and though they wed, it has nothing to do with romantic love but everything to do with survival. Their connection becomes the very source of their strength to go on living and build a life of purpose.
