The synopsis for the film reads: “Lily (Reynolds) is a museum curator who discovers a painting that looks just like her and is sent to find out where the painting came from and who painted it. Lily’s quest takes her to Ireland, where she locates the painting to the post office it was sent from. There she meets William (McWilliams) and Saoirse (Kathryn McKiernan), a brother-sister duo who run the post office. They offer to help, but William knows more than he’s letting on. He must decide whether to share what he knows, even if it jeopardizes the growing feelings he and Lily have for each other.”
