Meet SUV driving, Finnish Spitz owning, mother of twins, Phillipa. Her daughter’s mental health requires intensive monitoring, husband’s ego constant stroking and she is forever reminded of her estranged Evangelical mother. Along comes Marcus, a devout born-again Buddhist, who brings with him the promise of new beginnings – if only her past would stop getting in the way.
The Middle Way explores the identities we create for ourselves and those put upon us; how the events of the past ricochet for years to come and the eternal pull of spiritual practices.
