The story of an American woman who takes a cathartic trip to the Italian Alps one year after completing cancer treatment. Liz, a dedicated college professor, struggles with her post-cancer life and changing priorities. Despite her husband’s well-meaning over-protectiveness, she takes

a trip with their friends – an American couple living in Milan – to Italy. When her friends assume the role of worried caregivers and suffocate her with a jam-packed itinerary, she escapes to the Alps to find her space. Here, Liz is able to reassert her independence. She learns to go forward, and return to her family, with a renewed sense of self -- free of compliance, guilt and obligation.
