Alice, a teacher, wife, and breast cancer survivor, begins having potent dreams (a mute young girl, chanting women, snakes, knives) that spill into her waking life, combining with fearful flashbacks from her cancer treatment. As the dreams suck her in, Alice helps one of her ESL students, a young Vietnamese woman, flee an abusive husband, and consequently becomes entangled with an offbeat group of women who, in combination with the dreams, help her to come to grips with the anger and fear she has been dealing with since her cancer diagnosis.

Warrior Woman is a tale of two sides to reality. Our daily lives unfold quite spontaneously. When our warrior woman can't quite remember the subtexts of her dreams, the imagery from the subconscious becomes intertwined with the activities of daily survival. This story meets up with each of us in our most quiet and alone moments when we are faced with grasping our own essence and mortality. The fundamental message of spirituality and bravery come to bear eventually on all of us. The colors and sounds of life resonate as we embrace the fabric of our lives. Each of us face the challenges of responsibility for finding a way to be strong and to act on our personal convictions. This warrior truly embraces her life and exhibits her willingness to push the boundaries of conflict in order to reach a moment of resolution.
