Throughout their childhood, the love between Silas and Cathleen has grown stronger and now, in 1900, they start to plan a life together. But a jealous woman is determined to ruin their happiness and uses Silas's father to do so. As a dutiful son, Silas has no choice but to obey his father, and Cathleen must pay the bitter price. Separated, each is swept to a place where it seems there is no love or peace, and no way back.
