Georgina, a Jungian analyst, returns from her mother's funeral to discover her husband's affair. At the same time, her teenage daughter is suffering from suicidal depression. Georgina consults a shaman from Peru, an Irish mystic, an energy healer in Minnesota, five psychiatrists and four psychologists to help her child. Together mother and daughter learn the big lesson of life: nothing is done to you; it is done for you, so you can awaken.
Four stalwart friends accompany Georgina on this journey which carries her to the incandescent shore of her being, where she encounters her own heart.
