Grieving and cut off from a life among El Salvadors elite, Monica and her American father move to Connecticut, vowing never to look back. Years later, an intriguing stranger, who has endured a terrible loss of his own, enters Monicas life, bearing an unusual request. Monica is propelled back to her lost world, retracing the shadowy last days of her mother, a marine scientist who had been on the brink of understanding the therapeutic applications of a rare, venomous sea creature. Now, her research is being corrupted by a secret clinic that claims the power to restore consciousness to the comatose. What Monica discovers will shatter the familys delicate truce with the past, and compel everyone involved to challenge their deepest notions of what it means to be alive.
