Dorothy Moy channels her dissociative episodes and mental health struggles into her art. When her five-year-old daughter exhibits similar behavior and begins remembering things from the lives of their ancestors, Dorothy believes the past has come to haunt her. Through an experimental treatment designed to mitigate inherited trauma, Dorothy intimately connects with past generations of women in her family. As painful recollections affect her present life, Dorothy discovers that a stranger is searching for her. Dorothy endeavors to break the cycle of pain, to find peace for her daughter, and gain the love that has been waiting, knowing she may pay the ultimate price
