Los Angeles, 1984, the year of the Olympiad. Demetra Killingworth, married to powerful business tycoon Marshall Killingworth, seems to be a woman who has it all--beauty, intelligence, a palatial mansion in Bel Air filled with priceless art. As some of her Los Angeles society friends have commented--what more could she possibly want? Happiness?
When Demetra, raised by nuns in an orphanage, finds the courage to make a search for her biological parents, Marshall threatens her, warning that if she does, there will be dire consequences. Demetra turns her back on a life of privilege and luxury to create a simpler, yet richer, more fulfilling life, she begins the search for her parents with new-found freedom and determination.
