Everything about forty-four-year-old Renee Strazio is just a little too perfect. She's manicured and pedigreed, has a wealthy, successful, and attractive husband, and has a son who makes her proud.
But this shallow perfection becomes blatantly apparent when she takes a luxury cruise with her husband and son. Renee finds herself taking stock of her life and the various aspects of it that continue to be a struggle-namely her sexuality. At the core of that struggle lies a burning desire to live life on her terms.
In a series of risks, Renee sets out to find herself. She decides to satiate what she believes is a "normal, natural curiosity" with the ship's female masseuse, Priti. But after one encounter, Renee is reawakened. The affair ignites the passion within her by recharging her sexually and spiritually in ways she's never known, and the luxury cruise becomes a journey of discovery and disclosure that could potentially give Renee more than she could have ever imagined: a life of her own.
