Jane struggles to find her safe place while her worst fears seem to be coming true: everything changes. How will she find safety as her father’s dementia gets worse, her mother is in the throes of a sexual awakening, and her relationship with her boyfriend Ian is falling apart. How do we find refuge in a world that feels like it’s getting more dangerous every day?
