When Patty Sutherland meets a handsome Malaysian price and they fall in love,it is like a fairy tale come true. Patty converts to the Muslim Faith so they can marry and they soon have a daughter and a son. Yet as time passes, Patty begins to see another dimension of the man she married: he is violent, drinks heavily, is unfaithful and his family is well -known for corrupt, immoral behavior. Hoping to improve her life, Patty asks her husband for a divorce. He orders her to leave the country, snatches the children's passports and threatens her life.

So begins Patty's quest. Traveling back and forth between America and Malaysia, when she learns the courts will not support her rights as a mother, she plans to smuggle the children out of the country and escape to freedom on a truly perilous journey.
