Rainbow loses everything in a tragic earthquake. With her husband and home forever lost, she sets out to visit family on the other side of the country, then to visit cyber friends in Europe. What she doesn’t tell anyone is that she plans to kill herself after visiting a cyber friend named Nadja in Munich, Germany whom she has a crush on.
