Strong ties of friendship between Sonia and her girl pals and honest feelings of love between Sonia and Chris make the story totally amazing in every way.

Inspired by the book ‘Eat, Love and Pray’, as Sonia refuses to accept her boyfriend’s stable proposal and ventures into a solo independent trip to a foreign land, the story takes an interesting twist. Wide array of interesting experiences and adventures mark her trip as she realizes a lot along the way. The story comes across a real-life experience without any unbelievable elements of surprise.
