It is 1971 when Ismail and Mary begin dating. Although it appears Ismail is an addict, Mary continues to see him, despite her parents’ objections. Mary’s biggest dream is to marry Ismail and she will do anything to ensure it happens. When Mary becomes pregnant, her parents have no choice but to consent to a wedding. Married life soon proves to be a disastrous reality as Ismail’s drinking and abuse of Mary escalates. Shortly before she gives birth, Ismail secures a job and pledges to stop drinking. When their beautiful baby, Patricia, is born, it seems everything has turned around for the better—until Ismail loses his job and begins drinking again, forcing Mary and Patricia to escape the abuse once and for all. As Patricia embarks on her own coming-of-age journey, she falls in love with Richard, a popular young basketball player. When a tragedy causes Richard to become self-destructive, Patricia attempts to save him from himself. Now only one question remains: Will she succeed? One Way Trip is a heartfelt story inspired by true events about love, friendship, and courage as life comes full circle for a mother and daughter struggling to find their way in an uncertain world.
