A chance meeting between two old friends.
The unveiling of long-hidden secrets…
Jenny and Ruth were best friends at school until Ruth abruptly moved away from their Cornish village and they lost all contact. Fourteen years later, a chance meeting on a train throws both their lives into turmoil.
One glimpse of Ruth's son Adam sends Jenny into a spiral of love, grief and obsession. Adam is the image of Jenny's husband, Tom, killed suddenly and tragically six months earlier. As Jenny discovers the truth about Adam, a powerful bond springs up between them that will have unforeseen consequences for both families.
‘Come Away with Me’ is a moving and provoking portrayal of how two women challenge each other's identity in what becomes an unbearable life swap.
