Where does one person end and the other begin? That's the question thathaunts Irene, a girl growing up in Toronto during the Great Depression.Living with her father, a pharmacist who finds comfort in the bottle,and her mother, a woman teetering on the edge of her own depression,Irene's crumbling family situation mirrors the economic and socialturmoil just beyond the front door of their respectable, working classneighbourhood home. As she grows into a young woman, Irene finds herself consumed by her mother's increasingly erratic moods and isolated in aworld where unemployment, poverty and bigotry have taken firm root.

Yet in the midst of lives that seem lost, Irene finds strength in theunlikely form of David, a young man from the Jewish farming community of Sonnenfeld, Saskatchewan, who is fighting his own battle for dignity,hope and a place in the world. (added by author)
