Through this woman's eyes, we look at our own life -- its meaning and direction, what we have done in the past and what we are capable of doing in the present -- and find the courage to change the direction of our life.
Despite all the craziness that our society uses to keep women (and men!) enslaved in the body, the real and wise woman inside of us will forever fight to discover what she is all about, irrespective of what is expected from society.
A compelling and dramatic story.
