Miri possesses a special quality: She is always there to go the extra mile to help another in need.One morning she finds a message in a bottle washed up to the shore. It is written by a young girl named Gitty, whose stepparents have submitted her to the Cackon - a psychiatric hospital ship under the control of the ominous People in White. All Gitty wanted was to be able to keep Torah and Mitzvos - but her stepparents were so adamant that she give up her frumkeit that they did this to her.Miri tries to find a way to help Gitty; but no one - other than her good friend, Aidel, believes this message is for real. Until they find Tzirel, a psychiatrist who may know just what to do to rescue Gitty.Turns out they will have to follow the invaluable advice of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, in his ma'amer "You Have Given the Ones Who Fear You Trials," in order to pass the ultimate test, of sailing out across dangerous waters, to the Cackon, to make their daring rescue.
