Hundreds of thousands of readers enjoy the joined column by writers' couple Sara and Karel on a daily basis, where they report openly about their life as a family. But behind this facade of their bohemian lifestyle a daily life filled with envy, resentment and even violence is festering. After another nocturnal escalation it's game over: Sara decides to leave Karel.
Soon after Sara becomes isolated — nobody wants anything to do with her any longer. In order to get her life back on track she checks into a retreat on the idyllic volcanic island of Stromboli. Led by a world-famous guru she — along with a motley crew of allies — indulges in role-play and exercises that keep pushing the envelope. What should have become a fresh start results in a descent into parts of the past she'd rather have kept hidden.
