Emerson is a survivor. Literally. She is the only one remaining of a family that has always left her conflicted. As she says her final farewell to the brother that is her last living family member, she is thrust into the depth of all she has lost.
Traumatized, she has no idea how to proceed. Her mental health is crumbling. Her marriage is shaky. And the foundation it was all built on, is a lie.
As she navigates her way through the rest of her life, her emotions become her reality. Plagued by Shame, immersed in Grief, and haunted by Fear, Emerson trudges through.
Despite her exhaustive efforts, her mind is a frantic and overwhelming place. She doesn’t feel safe. She doesn’t know what’s true. It becomes clear that the only option is to bring in experts. With their help Emerson overhauls her psyche, and discovers that sometimes the only way out, is through.
