Maye Emory is seeking a new tribe after the ultimate betrayal - at the hands of her own parents. After escaping a sex trafficking ring disguised as an innocuous "love cult", she finds herself stuck in a cycle of naive and unhealthy relationships. To get unstuck, she must face her demons and build a new foundation.
In a journey traversing through the California Redwoods to the Andes she discovers the true meaning of family. And through a wise teacher and rare plant, she finds a way to blossom...and perhaps even a path to immortality.
