Claire is 17. While vacationing together in South Africa, her family dies in a terrible accident. By a stroke of fate, she is the only one to survive the tragedy. Utterly distraught, convinced she is responsible for the death of her loved ones, devastated and guilt-ridden, she flees and decides to let fate, which saved her from death, now guide her life. Will this initiatory journey give her the means to return home and face the scrutiny of others? Over the course of her adventures and encounters, some happy and others tragic, she skips over life stages, finally realizing that she carries within her the strength to shape her own destiny.
