It is a starry August night in rural Newfoundland; the year is 1926. Seventeen year old Mary Snow is star-gazing under a full moon as she waits for her fiancé, Jerome MacKenzie, to visit. A voice is heard in the distance, and Jacob Mercer, her former beau appears in the yard. Mary is taken aback to see Jacob as he had left Newfoundland for Toronto quite abruptly, one year before.
