An inspiring documentary about true commitment--
what it takes and what it gives back.
An ambitious young woman has the picture perfect life in Boston: she is rising in her career and has a handsome successful boyfriend. But deep down she feels she doesn't belong in that city, that job, or that relationship.
She leaves everything behind and sets out on a journey to find connection and come alive again.
First she adopts Kaya, a rescue dog who needs a second chance. Then she discovers the joy of Argentine tango. Full of hope and love, Sarah begins to travel the world as a tango gypsy while Kaya enjoys time in the country with Sarah's mother.
One day Sarah gets a call from her mother: something is wrong with Kaya. On that day, Sarah has no idea that this would be the beginning of a heartbreaking journey through love and loss.
