Description

Janis Lange, a divorcee in her late twenties, is about to undertake a major transformation in her life. The dreams that consume her are large and small, fantastic and horrific, some arising from the physical and emotional abuse in her early childhood and others given to her from the Divine Spirit of love that seeks only to help her grow and be happy. In the coastal city of Bridgeport, British Columbia, where she lives alone with her son Shawn in a Low Income Housing Complex, Janis bears the stigma of poverty and the wounds of past and present lovers. She reaches to express herself in her world, her longing for love, her freedom of choice, including a cherished career in art and writing. Through a contact with photographer friend, Bill Davis, who works for the Magazine, Northwest Living, Janis is able to obtain a part-time job typing up a fiction novel for submission to a major publishing company for overworked staff journalist, Rob Shatler, who is frustrated with his present unfulfilled career and romantic life. Rob befriends Janis and helps her develop her own unique talents. A romance begins to stir, but Rob’s mentally disturbed and violently possessive girlfriend, Lynda Evans, decides to quench the literary fires by leveling threats at Shawn, and plans designs on Janis’ life.
