Julia has two children, a caring husband, a newly-built house and a nice job. But she is not happy. Even antidepressants cannot change this. One night, she spontaneously gets into her car and drives straight to the Portuguese Algarve. The fashionable world with attendant enticements offers Julia a welcome escape, but gradually she discovers that escaping is not the same as finding happiness. This requires her to get reconciled with her painful past. This drama is based on Heleen van Royen’s eponymous bestseller.
