Told through the eyes of a twenty-seven year old African-American masochistic lesbian named Po, this compelling narrative follows a poetic trail of revelation, sexual perversion, religious fanaticism and the supernatural, to a redeeming conclusion of inner peace. After sustaining a serious injury which occurs during an S/M scene with her lover, and receiving a call from her brother informing her of her father's death, Po checks herself into a psychiatric ward. While in hospital, Po relives some of her life's most vivid events - with dramatic results.
