Jen thinks of traveling Europe with fellow Mormon, Jeanne, and a Catholic named Bert, as an escape from her conservative upbringing and the pressures of conforming to a religion she does not believe in. But she discovers freedom means more than being worldly, having a guilt free good time and finding the perfect pint of ale. Real freedom for Jen is about telling friends on a night train she was molested by a highly respected Mormon man who is also her uncle, and knowing that with Bert and Jeanne's support she would do something about it. It's about discovering Jeanne is a lesbian and choosing her friendship over the ingrained Mormon ideal that homosexuality is a sin. It's about learning that spirituality isn't confined to a church. And freedom means discovering how to have an ale laden, raucous, guilt-free journey of self-discovery.
