Heartwarming, compelling and full of charm Out of the Blue tells the story of Florence, a lady recovering from a family tragedy who discovers a strangely dressed and suspiciously disorientated young man asleep in her guest cottage at her home. Against the advice of friends and family who fear he may be a fraud, she decides to help him restore his wandering mind and to discover who he might be. As the mystery unfolds it is apparent his real identity is quite close to home and in their quest an adventure takes them into many pasts, not least that of the young man. In doing so they are finally able to put the tragedies of her own past and that of the young man behind them, repair their once disjointed lives, and embrace a new and happy future.
