Faith leaves her hometown in Zambia to study in Kenya. Never having left Zambia alone before, she has big, exciting plans for the future. Thrillingly, she meets the love of her life at university, and they marry in no time. Together, they settle in Nairobi and begin building a life, but what begins as a beautiful marriage swiftly unravels into a dangerous nightmare for Faith.
She now fears the angry man in her home. He seems to hate her, which forces Faith to contemplate and eventually attempt suicide. Due to her horrible farce of a marriage, she loses her identity, as laughter and happiness become distant memories. Eventually, her abusive husband demands a divorce, leaving Faith in a foreign country with no income and two children.
Once a strong, independent woman, Faith must fight to keep things together and find herself again. She counts pennies and continues to take one step … and another, hoping for a bright future. Faith’s is a story of hope despite despair, second chances, and starting over, no matter age or circumstance. Perhaps, she will even reconnect with the happy girl that left Zambia.
