Mara, Olivia and Zoe are all women committed to a life of sailing, but struggling to find their place in a world dominated by wealthy and powerful men. Each also brings a personal quest to her voyages. Mara seeks to create an identity, incorporating her newly discovered love for women; Zoe tries to balance her need for intimate connection with her love of casual affairs; and Olivia struggles to heal from a childhood of sexual abuse and make crucial decisions about her future. Through their growing friendships and love, they come to new understandings of themselves and their aspirations. Sailing the open oceans, sometimes together, sometimes apart, it is their letters, their dreams and their connection to the stars that keeps them going, moving toward a goal of an all-women crew.
