Film adaptation of Saska Noort's successful novel.
Forty-something Sara(Elise Schaap) arrives on the island of Stromboli after her divorce with a suitcase full of vodka and an exhausted heart. She has made a mess of things and now what...? Meeting the charismatic guru Jens(Christian Hillborg) brings her to his expensive retreat resort. There, under his guidance, a motley crew of wandering souls seek new footing in life. Sara must confront the demons of her past. The armor she has put on from a traumatic childhood experience is peeled off shell by shell.
Director Michiel van Erp himself calls it a "drama comedy"; a lively and colorful spectacle about the searching man. Based on the bestseller of the same name by Saskia Noort.
