Shaza, a Syrian-Canadian housewife, is happily married and living the Canadian dream with a beautiful house in the suburbs, a loving family, and amazing friendships. When shy and sweet Shaza decides to abandon her family and embark on a strange journey of her own, her friends—Najat, Sonia, and Reem— are left entirely baffled.
Did her husband harm her? Did she try and go back to Syria? Is she tied to the conflict?
They follow her journey which takes her to Istanbul, Jordan, Netanya, Mecca, Jeddah, and London. Her friends come to learn the secrets which Shaza has harboured all her life, and in the process they come to learn a lot about themselves.
