In the summer of 2002 Shannon Leone Fowler was backpacking with her fiancé Sean in Thailand. They were planning to return to Melbourne after their excursion to Koh Pha Ngan, but their plans were tragically derailed when a box jellyfish wrapped around Sean's legs, stinging and killing him in minutes. Rejecting the Thai authorities attempt to label the death 'drunk drowning,' Shannon ferried his body home to his stunned family - a family to which she suddenly no longer belonged. Shattered and untethered, Shannon set out on a journey to make sense of her loss. From Auschwitz in Poland to war-torn Israel, shelled-out Bosnia, poverty-stricken Romania, and finally to Barcelona, where she first met Sean years before, Shannon charts a path through sorrow towards recovery.
