Brief synopsis

Paul is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to work as an intern for the United Nations. Plagued by his mothers terminal illness he abandons his dream to relocate to New York and instead continues to take care of her during this difficult time. The inevitability of his mothers condition causes Paul to increasingly lose the ability to go his own way. Feelings of guilt, despair and fear dominate his decisions. Powerless to detach himself from his mother he almost sacrifices his long term relationship with his girlfriend Sarah. Eventually, through an unsparing confrontation with Sarah and a profound spiritual experience Paul can break free and regains his ability to live.
