Synopsis

Rebecca has a most unusual problem: no matter how hard she tries, she can't stop broadcasting her feelings to people around her. Luckily, she's discovered how to trap and store her feelings in personal objects - but just how much emotional baggage can Unit 207, E.Z Self Storage hold?



Lewis is grieving for his wife, Lisa, Rebecca's sister. Inconsolable, he skips Lisa's funeral, flies to Winnipeg, gets a haircut and meets a woman who claims to be God.



At the wheel of stolen Honda Civic is Aberystwyth, aka Aby, driving across Canada to save the soul of her dying mother. She is green, gill-necked, and very comfortable out of water.



An unexpected encounter with Aby seys off a chain of events which sends each of them on a personal quest. Can Rebecca, Lewis, Aby find redemption before a terrible flood destroys their chance at happiness?



A charming tale about love and the power of forgiveness.
