A genetic disease is gradually robbing Dot of her eyesight. Her relationships with her mother and friends are challenged during her struggle for independence and self-assertion. With the help of her boyfriend, best friend and a wayward priest, Dot brings the audience on a journey that discovers the kind of vision needed not only to prevail over this disease, but to thrive with spirit, humor and hope. For mature audiences only, due to sexual content and strong language.
