After an accident at sea, novelist Sophie Matthews awakens on the rickety sailing boat of a mysterious man: Joshua. He is searching for the island Saudadia. But this one is just a myth. A fairy tale of a place where all people live in perfect harmony.
Trapped by the narrowness of Joshua’s boat, both come closer to each other – and fall in love. Right before they seem to reach the island, the two get into a dreadful storm... and Sophie capsizes again.
She regains consciousness in a hospital. But no trace of a Joshua. Was he just a hallucination, as the doctors say? Sophie embarks on a quest to find proof – of the existence of Joshua – of the existence of Saudadia...
A story about belief, about the search for an impossibility, about the inscrutable scope of our inner world.
