Geraldine's heart has been broken too many times, but that doesn't stop her searching for the love of her life. Born and brought up in Ireland, Geraldine longs to break away from her roots and traditions and make her own way in life, but it's not that simple.
Realising that trying to be a teenager again with her daughter won't work, and that a string of empty relationships and sexual encounters won't lead to true love, Geraldine makes a break for it and takes a trip to India.
In the sensual mix of colours, sounds and cultures of the Far East, she undergoes a reawakening of her yearnings and finds herself questioning her motives. Crossing social boundaries to explore her desires she finds satisfaction and answers in unexpected places.
This tale of searching and yearning is a tender and frank account of one woman's search for her own personal Nirvana, and the effects on her and those around her as she pursues a greater understanding of who she is.
