THE LIGHT IN THE POOL
A girl leaves the warm cocoon of a small town to the city of Toronto where she gets lost in rave land, drug addiction, prostitution, psych wards, failed relationships and multiple suicide attempts. The light in the pool is a real-life, coming-of-age story with a strengthened emphasis on reconnecting with her spiritual, inner world. It isn't until she reaches her late 20s, after years living a stable, comfortable life that she faces an unexpected trigger that brings all her suppressed memories (and rage) to the surface and it takes several years to truly recover. The Light in the Pool tells a story of searching for clarity and inner peace from sexual abuse, complex post traumatic stress disorder, addiction and codependency. A story capturing the power of disconnection from one's own body and remembering things that are better left forgotten.
