Synopsis

Lila Nova's spirit is fading. What she thought was a stable marriage is over, and her dynamic career in New York advertising is something she no longer believes in. At thirty-two she's lacking direction and she's grown disillusioned with big city life. But one Saturday afternoon in Union Square a chance meeting with a mysterious plant seller leads to an unforgettable night. Some passions are fleeting, but this time Lila has developed an obsession that's here to stay. As her Manhattan apartment grows lush with fire ferns and stunningly exotic flowers, Lila starts to feel her old, vibrant self coming back, and when the opportunity arises she escapes to Mexico in search of the places where her plants grow wild. In the dense rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula she meets Huichol shamans, herbalists and orchid obsessive's, and begins to see glimmers of the meaning she's been looking for. And as her fantastical adventure unfolds, she meets a man who just might be able to dent her emotional armor...
