A Greek Canadian woman embarks on an interior journey through a black hole in her heart to retrieve gifts from the wound. Following a plant called plantain which has also been named white man’s footprints as it was said to have followed the European settlers everywhere they went. Navigating fragmented threads of an ancient myth and pre-hellenic ceremony to remember how to navigate a loss of identity and the cycles that accompany it.
