When Ella, a former Israeli intelligence commander, finds herself lifeless on the bathroom floor, she realizes it is time to make a drastic change in her seemingly “perfect” life. Ella admits to herself she is an addict, the drug of her choice is not substances, but people and codependency. Unhealthy obsessions have led her to dark places full of emotional chaos. Ella starts her journey of finding truth, deep love, and dark secrets while bouncing between people-pleasing and control, doubt and certainty, marriage and divorce, and life and death.
Ella leaves her birthplace of Jerusalem for a place where she can better discover who it is that she is called to be. She comes to Los Angeles, determined to build a life free from the straitjacket of expectations. In L.A., Ella finds new depths of courage, unconventional new romances, and Dan, the father of her children and the catalyst to transform her life.
Surrounded by addictions, Ella discovers that she has her own addictions, which are rooted in her 'Good Girl' childhood. She movingly maps the breakdown of a marriage and the struggle to present a brave face for her young children, and most importantly, Ella's relentless commitment to learning a healthier, more authentic, and joyous way to live.
