A city girl, a mysterious illness, and a surprising love affair with nature
Mari Andrew was leading a charmed existence. At 30 years old, she had a book deal, was living in Spain, learning Flamenco, and making a living through her art.
And then one day, she came down with a mysterious disease. A disease that would turn Mari's life on its head.
The illness kept her hospitalized for a month -- and disabled long after that. It took her away from the things she loved and shattered her sense of identity.
But it also resulted in something unexpected: a relationship with the natural world that was as powerful as it was surprising.
Producer Greta Weber brings us Mari's story.
