Blair Brown embraces the role of anthropologist Susannah Connolly, who is on assignment in France. Connelly is there with mixed motives. She wants to gain distance from a failed love affair and to fulfill a commitment she made to her mother years ago. Brown's seamless narrative traces Connolly's search for her maternal roots, which takes her to the Romany gypsies, and mysterious Saint Sarah, their patron saint. When Connelly meets Gary Dempsey and his young daughter, who is blind from a fall off a horse, Brown subtly reveals their mutual attraction. Giving a polished performance, including a French accent, Brown weaves mother-daughter dynamics amid themes of spirituality, love, and destiny to render this contemporary romance.
