Storyline

Lola is an eccentric woman in her 30s who lives in a daze of girlish expectations, not knowing what to believe, or what to expect from life, and never clear about where things are heading. Her relationship is in a constant state of confusion, mostly because her husband Mike behaves more like her father than a partner. He is short-tempered and egotistical, with little tolerance for her indecisiveness, so the two coexist in a lavish environment of sterility and tension. Lola's life takes a sudden turn when she saves the life of a mysterious woman. Sandra is everything Lola wants to be: confident, outspoken, in control of her destiny. But the promise of a relationship between the two women is cut short when Sandra's dark past catches up with her. On the run from this fateful encounter, but too scared to return home, Lola goes on the road to fulfill the destiny of a woman she barely knows. As she moves through the landscape toward Sandra's childhood home, she slowly starts to absorb her ... Written by Anonymous

Searching for one's self....
26 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Living in a city as beautiful as Vancouver has its dark side, in more ways than anyone can imagine. Attracting lost souls at an early age is one of the lures of British Columbia's only glittering and inviting city cozily lodged on the shores of the warm Pacific Ocean and nestled in view of the surrounding Rocky Mountains.

Teenager dreams of squirting out of small towns and abusive family relationships abound and mostly end up in a wasted life naively domineered by pimps, drugs and finally untimely death is commonplace.

When Lola, a somewhat unfocused and distracted girl being psychologically abused by her boyfriend, decides to change her life, accidentally finds herself in a journey to find motherly love in an unknown woman.......
