Overview

Inspired by true events, this fast-paced and compelling story chronicles a handicapped family’s struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. A story of personal transformation, it documents their life and death struggles and their ability to give so much when they have so little. Their plight is set in stark contrast to the materialism of contemporary society and the public ridicule and social rejection they suffer as a result of their handicaps—short term memory loss and epilepsy.

Garnet Dewitt has been having epileptic seizures for as long as he can remember-some so severe he wakes up in the hospital bruised and battered with no recollection of what happened. Finally, doctors are able to isolate the area of his brain responsible for the seizures. But during surgery, something goes terribly wrong and it’s unclear if he will ever recover.

In the meantime, his handicapped wife Ella, struggling with public ridicule and dwindling finances, has a terrible fall that lands her in hospital and doctors discover she has a brain tumor that must be operated on. But, she slips into a coma and enters a dark world that seems real on one hand and eerily surreal on the other. Debbie Dupree, a successful realtor and the epitome of a capitalist machine, is her only hope for survival. Debbie starts helping them to ease her guilty conscience just as her own life begins to unravel.
