Loving the terrorist. Risking it all.
Miriam is forty and frustrated. In an attempt to enhance her living-just-to-breathe life, she joins some neighbours protesting a highway bypass that will destroy Eagleridge Bluffs. Not only are the Bluffs her special sanctuary, they’re also the beautiful home of rare and endangered plants and animals.
The protest gains the support of environmental organizations including the attention of a group of eco-radicals lead by an enigmatic young man named Zaahir.
Miriam is mesmerized by this charismatic leader and sees him as someone that can save her as well as the Bluffs.
But is Zaahir just using Miriam to help him further his radical political agenda? As legal channels fail and civil disobedience falters, Miriam is seduced into the murky world of eco-terrorism.

Or is it something else, something more personal?

But then he’d tried the conventional route in the beginning, not unlike the folks protesting at Eagleridge Bluffs, and where had it gotten him, the movement, the living things that were now gone forever? How could it be different? To save the earth, society had to drastically be changed and powerful interests were threatened by this. They’d do what it takes to maintain the status quo—undermine legitimate governments, support corrupt ones, lie, cheat, even kill those that opposed them while they continued to rape and pollute the planet. They’d never submit, even as they drew their last breath of poisoned air.
